    mono bottom end works better with vinyl (so I have heard)

    when you collapse the bottom end to mono (in the past, currently) how do you do this?

    I have a plugin from Boz Digital Labs - Mongoose - that I use to mono-ize mixes sometimes. The typical track that I do this to is live recordings with everything in the same room. I tend to set the crossover at about 250 Hz, and I "widen" the highs to about 150%.

    It sounds more like "live" than not.
