1. Is there anyway to turn up the volume on the metronome? (Reaper) I can't hear it at all during recording.

2. Are there PA sims? My vox are far too quiet. When I set up (2i4) I have my gains set so that the mic input is just as loud as the gutiars, but I can't hear myself at all. So when I turn the guitar tracks down and the vox track up, it almost sounds hollow.

No and you don't need them. You need to learn how to properly record and treat your vocals. What are you recording vocals with? Are you picking up lots of room sound?

You shouldn't be trying to match volumes on input, that's what volume sliders and post is far. Worry about getting a good solid signal that you can mix afterwards.

1. Thanks

2. It's some p.o.s. Peavey. r100i or something like that. Is there some guideline to follow for recording/editing/mixing vocals?

I don't know about any guidelines, but when I've had to record vocals on less-than-ideal microphones (e.g. the headset mic on my Plantronics GameCom 780) I find that I NEED compression on while I'm monitoring, and often a lot of it. Once I've got them done I can EQ, compress, and add any other effects I want and it will sit fine, but during the recording I almost always need to compress the shit out of it for monitoring.
