I find that when I recording screaming vocals, my voice always sounds really weird and weak in the mix. for instance in my track "Devil's Notebook" I find the voice superweak, but when I sing live it doesn't sound that way. is it the mixing, recordings, or am I just shouting to weak?

does it need more compression, reverb, basically: how do I record and mix scream/shout vocals better?

Layer and double take your vocals, 3 harmonies, have a talking background one if needed
add quiet a far bit of delay to bring in a more bigger feel, the
2 points of delay a short 6-7 mm delay and
a large delay distant (ECHO, ......... echo)

in studio put take your time to record individual verses make sure you have best possible recording don't rush it

I don't think that'd really help. If anything it would just make them louder. Which we don't neccissarily want. I think the big problem is them actually fitting in the mix. Play with EQ I guess, thats all I can tell you.

EDIT: But I think they sound alright, now that I'm listening again. I would just turn up their volume. No need to double them up, in my opinion.

Hey, I don't mean to take over this thread, but I'm going to .

I have kinda the same problem just the opposite. My screams sound like howls, and are just overwhelming. Does anyone know how I could fix that problem? I'm using Audacity to record.

Make sure you're not peaking the input when you record. *points at the "Sugar" cover backup vox ;P*

I almost always double track, unless an entire verse/chorus is screaming. EQ appropriately to get more "bite" out of it.
