comment How to handle extreme dynamic range in a vocalist?
But yeah, I do the "what's the loudest thing you'll be singing" question, and set the trim based on that, then add a little for safety. When I add a little more, I always misunderestimate and go too low. Performers often get caught up in their energy and go louder than they thought they would; I'll try asking them to scream!

No no no no no. A second mic for the vocal; I already had a mic for the guitar and a mic for the vocal.

Thanks, and while this is a good intro to mic technique, it misses the point. The situation is that we have a singer who doesn't know this; until she learns, how to deal with it in the studio?

comment Best Digital recorder for use as a ‘body pack’ + good field recorder?
I use an H2 as well and love it. I used it in-between computers, to produce serviceable tracks.

Recorded with a Zoom H2: Robin M'aime. (The H2 is similar o the H1, but has four mics in a quadrophonic pattern.)
