    Compression, eq, and reverb. A great screamer is always a plus :cool:

    sm7 or sm58, and the sansamp plugin all come in very handy. as do compression and eq. don't overdo the compression however.

    watch those red lights!

    Yeah I would also go for the 58. Has a certain "je ne sais quoi" with screamers.

    Also try the following trick: Double the final vokal take, and distort it with a plugin like trash, sans amp or amplitube. Then fade it in as necessary. Adds a grittiness and dirtyness that can make it very interesting. Maybe not for the whole track, but only during those real screams.
  6. If they scream, stick to a dynamic mic like the SM57. If they scream like a vocal coach teaches you, then use a good condenser.
