@sir do you sometimes attach the monitors to your thinkpad?
@Wolf480pl no. Most of the time I SSH into the thinkpad from my desktop
@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...
