Hi Der Wikinger,It's sort of a "Karioke" setup. My tenor (1970 Mexiconn shooting star) Otto Link 6* mouth piece, Rico 2 1/2 reed. I "play along" with Finale and then record to my friend's recorder.
My Mentor, Jack Eslinger, also complains that I do not have dynamics, he says I sound like an "Organ Grinder." But I tell him no worries, my monkey is a Gorilla.
