Trumpet Recording Tricks and Stereo
I have got back into home studio recording. Are there any good tricks for recording trumpet. I've done a little googling, mostly tips for big band type recording, no ribbon mic here maybe later.
I am interested in different processing techniques especially VSTs. I have started using auto tune, a nice effect, maybe a gate to keep down breath noises.
So far one of my favorite effects is taking advantage of the proximity effect on with a harmon mute and getting right down on a dynamic mic.
I want to do some stereo recording, I think that is an advantage of trumpet that it is a nice portable and directional instrument. I have a pair of pencil condenser mics. Haven't had a lot of luck getting a good tone this way though, too bright and kinda harsh, though a bucket mute helps here. Any ideas?

Ribbon mics remain my favorite for open horn or muted horn for recording.
