Hi, I'm a composer and I need to record simple demos in my home studio. I've got good enough gear to do that and I get pleasing results on my vocals during low volume takes. But during louder and higher passages, esp. for females, I just keep getting so much distortion. I know the problem is that I can't set my gear properly, so I need your help. I have a Rode NTK mic, a Summit 2BA-221 preamp and a Summit TLA-50 preamp. Can anyone give me some genaral rules on how to set my amp and comp in order to get the best possbible results. Most of my songs tend to have both very soft and very loud passages, and hopefully I won't have to change settings along the way as I am doing now. Thanks!
