Recently I've been recording my ocarina and trying to get the best possible (most professional) sound that I could. When it comes to the big breaths that we make before and after a melody, how loud should the breath be? Should I just take it out completely? Or does it add to the effect? Does it make it more human? Is that a good thing or not? What are your opinions? Huh

I couldn't fail to disagree with you less.

Salut!

I don't think they're such a bad thing, but then there's an awful lot I don't know about recording.  When there's a backing track, it tends to drown them out anyway.  I'd say the best thing is to just try to breathe discreetly and then forget about it.

I think it's a matter of personal preference.  Somewhere I read that in Irish tin whistle players work breathing in as part of the music.  Windsongs of the Ocarina by Francis Maxino

has some really lovely music and he makes no attempt to remove the breathing sounds.
