For a start, live room variables seem to matter less when the mic is cupped in the player's hands, which is how most players use a mic with my RP patches.  I typically assume that the RP is the only signal processor in the chain besides the amp. 

Beyond that, I just tweak the various elements of the patch over and over, using a neutral (keyboard) amp to minimize frelistening for feedback as I boost the output.
