If you really are moving everything around, and feel a bit adventurous
I'd suggest experimenting with a different speaker placement. ATM they
are on your desk, which is *really* close. It depends a bit on the type
of speakers you have, but you could try to put them at a larger distance.
For example, put the desk so you are with your back to a wall when
sitting at it, and put the speakers on the opposite wall (which could
be e.g. above the bed). It would feel rather different when mixing (and
I'm sure, at the start quite insecure). But maybe you'll like the result.



There are three of them, and Alleline.
