This is new stuff for me, please help.
I have this usb audio interface: ur242 and Cubase LE AI Elements 8 64bit.

You need to seriously compress screams when you record them. You should have compression on at all times on vocals and set the threshold to only kick on at certain levels, so when the vox get too loud the compression kicks in.

If you're screaming right up into the mic, yeah, use a healthy bit of compression. Stepping back from the mic about a foot or so before the scream will also help, but might still need a bit of compression.
