Anyone have any starting point tips for rap vocals (mics, placement, signal chain, techniques, etc...). Trackin' a guy next week. We'll probably experiment a little with a few pre's, comps, & mics, but if anyone has any good ideas or suggestions....let em fly. My mics: Lawson L47-MP, Blueberry, 414B-ULS, 57's, sm81's, blah blah. Pre's: Amek 9098's, Manley 40db's, Avalon 737sp, TLAudio pre/eq's, Mackie's. Probably use a Distressor (unless the Avalon comp sounds real good).
