While that was at one time considered correct, that spelling has fallen out
of favor, at least in the US. My dictionary lists "flautist" as a variant
of "flutist," rather than the other way around. In future editions it will
probably be noted as archaic.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
