I'm recording a band with quite a shrill sounding vocalist. Its high, screamy, and screetchy. I have a C414 that goes through a Great River MP-1NV into a presonus interface into logic. I am considering getting something else to soften, and improve the week spots of the vocals. here is an example of the vocalist on a previous recording(recorded with a Shure KSM32): http://www.mediafire.com/?wdyvozmyjvm Anyone familiar with a Rode NTV? Would that be better off? I have also heard its better to keep a chain all solid state or all tube, any truth to that?
