Recording „U“ vocal

Hello
Does anybody help me with recording „HM“ (brumendo) and „U“ vocals ?
They are a bit complicated , because there is a lot of incoming breathe .
What can I do for best record of this vocals ?

Thanks a lot

If there's too much breath in those sounds, it's probably the singer's fault. You can then only try to get the mic slightly off-axis or at a larger distance. If one doesn't sing directly into the mic, but slightly past it, the air flow will not touch the mic, but of course it's going to sound different.
Is your main problem a "breathy" sound or rather the wind coming out of the mouth?

It is wind coming out of the mouth , if is mic slightly off-axis or at a larger distance it sounds quietly .

One of the first things my vocal teacher trained me was doing "U"s without wind...this being classical without any mic nearer than 5 ft.
Just because of the SOUND...

So, on the long run, try to get the singer to make less windy "U"s. For now miking from the side should be ok.
You might also want to try a pressure transducer (SD omni - a lot less susceptible to wind) in the mouth-axis, and a good pop screen.
