but i have no idea how he doues that!
maby one of you guys has an idea how to make the sound better.
He/She is usimg a "Hall" reverb on the Trumpet.
You can get close to this sound using the GVerb plugin.
-Set the Room size to 135
-Set the Reverb time to 3.2000
-(can be more or less, this is an approximation of a large concert hall)
-Input bandwidth .75
-Dry Signal Level (all the way to the right 0) or (not quite all the way to the right)
(The dry signal level is the original sound so you really don't want to lessen it too much if any)
-Early Reflection Level -35
-Tail Level -17.5
I did this quickly so you will want to experiment, the YouTube video sound is probably using an expensive Lexicon hardware digital reverb but... you can come surprisingly close using the built in effects of Audacity.
Experiment with the reverb settings I posted.
Also, use EQ to slightly boost the 300-500hz range. Those are low mids and will fatten the sound.
