If you've watched all the movies in this course up to this point, you've probably realized how important the room is when recording and how we always want to find the best place in the room to record each instrument. Horns are no different, but you have to use a different approach to find that one best place as you'll see in this movie. Many rooms are not well suited for horn recording, in a relatively dead room that has carpeting on the floor or soft walls or ceilings, the sound of the room always seems to be at the same level, regardless of how loud or soft the horns play. As a result, they feel like they have to work harder.
One way to overcome this is to move the players a few steps closer to the wall or glass. That way they can get some reflections and therefore hear themselves better and won't over blow. One of the interesting things about all horn players is that when they warm they inevitably find the spot in the room where the horn sounds best to them. Try placing the player and the mic there first. Since they are already comfortable there and will play better because the room reflections seem natural. The room is more important to a horn player, than for most other instruments. Try to take advantage of the reflective part of the room to make sure they can hear themselves so they don't over blow.
