    Hi all,

    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.

    I like my signal path so far and don't want a pedal or effect that will color my sound. Something really transparent and natural would be nice. More overdriven than distorted if at all possible for responsiveness.

    It would be awesome to know what some other bands have done on their albums like Pantera, Poison the Well, Glass Jaw, etc.

    Send the vocals through a distorted guitar amp and mix that dirty sound with your clean track. You can get some of the coolest sounds doing this.
