you might have to carve out some frequencies from the guitars so that the vocals come out clearly. always get a good vocal track first since that is the emphasis of the song, then 'design' the instruments around the vocals.

cut holes around the eq of the instruments.  using a spectrum analyzer (hard or soft) on the vocal track and figure out where it sits, particularly the frequency bands that define the vocals.  then, on the instrument tracks,  attenuate those frequencies.  i can't give you a ballpark frequency dahil iba-iba yan depende sa singer.

ang effect niyan is, as kitc said, the vocals will come out clearly.

EDIT:  mukhang maingay yung recording interface mo, the guitar track is hissing.  get a decent mic preamp.  or, try decreasing the guitar level sa recording interface tapos boost mo sa software.  or,  lunurin mo sa software reverb XD

m-audio transit is a recording interface. 

as for reaper,  try figuring it out.  check if it has a mixer/console view.  tapos adjust mo yung eq doon.

try to record at the loudest possible level. most hiss comes out when you raise the levels in your DAW after recording.
