First off, here is my specs... 1)Behringer B-2 Microphone plugged into a phantom power box which goes to the input jack of... 2) dbx 266xl compressor/gate (need to know whats a good setting for the threshold, ratio, attack, and release for a good strong vocal for hip hop) which the output jack from the compressor goes to... 3) Behringer Eurorack UB1204FX- Pro Mixer mic input (need to know what are good EQ settings like the Hi, Mid, Low, etc.) which is connected via RCA plugs from the Tape Output to... 4) The mic input jack on my C-Media Wave Device 32-bit sound card on my computer... I use Sony Acid Pro 5.0 Music Studio to record my vocals. Its like Im not getting that good sound like I want. It sounds OK but when I start recording my vocals it kind of sounds muffled or like its too loud at it seems to fade a little bit in and out. I dont know if my threshold is too high or what. But I had a weak Boss BR-532 Studio Recorder that made my vocals sound better. I dont really know what the problem is here. I need someones help immediately. Thank you for your assistance.
