Hi guys,

You know that effect that a lot of people use on their mic, so that you could still hear the vocals clearly, but there's a slight overdriven effect in the background if you hold a note? Almost like the micropone is in pain or something. How would I go about doing that, does anyone know?

Could I just use a guitar overdrive pedal between the mic and it's amp/PA or would that not be a good idea? I'm not really experienced in setting up vocals mics and stuff.

Any help welcome, cheers

I tried using brootals with vocals with my RP70, was horrible but kinda funny. Iono vocals are just like drums, they just are best when clean. you can use any guitar pedal really...

Exactly like that, how do I do that?

I don't know for sure...but my best guess is just clip it to pieces. Keep on clipping until it sounds how you want. You could achieve a similar sound from absolutely smashing them with a compressor with something like a 20:1 ratio...effectively brickwalling them.

Although like I said, I don't know, but I would start with these and if they don't work keep looking.

Basically by putting more volume into the mic than it want's to take, it's called clipping. Jack White has a tendency to do it to, I've always liked the sound of it. If you're too close to a mic, or just scream from too close, it'll clip (at least that's my experience in recording with cheap gear). Hope that'll help.
