In my ears, the vocal sounds dull or muffled. (however I get pleasing results when recording female singers).

Does anyone here have experience with the combination tlm-103 and VoxBox? Any thoughts on what settings might work for rap on the VoxBox (Gain, attack/release, threshold).

Like I said, I´m not pleased with how it sounds, and wonder if I should get a different mic, or pre-amp, or if there should be another link in the chain before it hits the DAW?
have you tried it with another mic or pre?
are you overcompressing on the way in?
