@sir do you sometimes attach the monitors to your thinkpad?
@sir just close mix with a cardioid pattern set (if it’s not a multi pattern, you’re already set)
Use a bit of compression and, depending on the mic, a couple of dB bump at 80Hz and one at 2k makes it sound nice
I often start with an FM radio preempahsis setting on a multi band compressor plug in.
A smattering If plate reverb. Turn it up, then turn it down until it almost disappears...unless you want that NPR sound
Some of my early work...
@sir ok. So I’m using an old old license for CuBase 3SX and the Ozone 3 plug in which I bought for a “song” back in 08 after someone upgraded to Pro Tools.
Ozone is a mastering suite
Ardour I am told is a good DAW on Linux. Audacity is great for clipping and stitching stuff together and doing post processing. Both have a shit tonne of FOSS audio plug-ins plus commercial offerings
I’m just used to CuBase’s work flow
