comment How to handle extreme dynamic range in a vocalist?
@Neil Fein, I'd probably change that to "learn to deal with it". I'm sure you can get some good sound out of what you have. ;)

@Kim Burgaard, Of course you raise the noise floor. While 24bit helps, it won't be as good as a silent studio with a great pre and analog compressor. However, it looks like the MOTU Audio Express and a noisy room is the environment.

I see what you mean. I don't think two mics on the vocal will help this situation any. It sounds like you are doing the right thing. If you have a nice pre with a good compressor, that should help a lot. Though, you'll probably have to play it safe with that MOTU and bring down the levels. It takes time to get to know a singer and how they perform. It sounds like you are going at quite a pace!

What is your music source? How many channels does your sound card have?

Please do not destroy the beautiful sound of the instruments with compression. Classical music is some of the only music that still has a large dynamic range, and it's very very very nice.
