The RE20 has always given me a smooth vocal sound on female vox...even the screechy ones! I find tubes to help with female vox too. I track RE20 -->UA610(I don't want to hear it!)--->La2a and its butter by that point!

RE20 is a great mic for this. A SM7 could do the trick too, but has very low output.

SM7b for shure (pun intended). Sounds great on tons of girls.

I have had good luck in the past with SM7. If it's going direct to digital, pairing it with a Neve or a bit of thicker pre seems to help.
