screaming vocals

High frequency warping/woosh when recording metal screaming?

Member for

Hey all, I'm using Cubase to record from:

Shure SM7B -> XLR cable -> cloudlifter CL-1 -> XLR cable -> Scarlett 8i6 (Phantom Power On - Gain = 7) -> USB cable -> laptop.

I have both the stock pop filter on the mic itself as well as a pop filter attached to the boom stand.

I'm getting some strange wooshing feedback every time there is a new word in the verse, the best way I can describe it is that high frequency shifting noise you get when tuning a radio between stations.

condenser mics for screaming vocals?

Well, I record a lot of speed punk music (think old DRI, RKL, Suicidal Tendencies, etc...), and I've just about had it with my Audix OM5. I just can't get a natural sound out of it: it isn't bright enough; I have to EQ so much it just sounds unnatural by the time I get it to the point where the vocals are clean and cutting. I'm starting to get really skeptical of people who say that the old punk bands used dynamic mics., because they are way too dark-sounding when I use them. So, I'm wondering if anyone uses condenser microphones for screaming?

i was wondering if anyone had some useful information on this. I'm prety sure there would have to be different techniques involved. I'm particular interested in getting that throaty sound that is like vocal distortion caused by the larynxs clashing together, but emphasizing it naturally by proper micing, not by resorting to distortion plugins like so many screaming bands do nowadays.

Best distortion pedal or method for screaming metal vocals

I had this in the vocal booth but got no responses so I'm reposting here, sorry!

I'm recording vocals for a screamo band. This is my chain:

AKG 535EB > Groove Tubes Brick > RNC comp > ADA > VS-880EX

The singing passages sound great but the screaming sections need more gain. My Brick doesn't have an input gain stage so i was wondering if anybody knew some good tricks or knew of a good stomp box they could suggest for using in the effects loop.

Very hard time with screaming vocals...

I'm trying to record my band and vocals is of course, the hardest part.

Our vocalist does screaming, and it has become difficult for a number of reasons. First of all, he screams loud, hes a big guy so I dont have to worry about hI'm being too quiet. I am using a PreSonus Firebox, and no other mic pre or anything. The mic I am using is a SM58 (sounded the best out of like 5 mics I tried). The vocals still come out very quiet on one track, I doubled it and still...
