The typical setup is a choice of large diaphragm mics, compared in the control room to be able to pick the best match for the voice and the song. Distance can be an inch to several inches depending on the desired effect. Pads are rarely needed but when close miking a loud singer it's safer to switch the pad on, if only to make sure the head amp won't distort on peaks. Always use a good-quality pop filter to protect capsule. For best results, pair with a Class-A Pre-amp.
