A few questions to try and get the best results.
1. What kind or % improvement would I get using a mic stand?
2. Does sub placement affect result curve?
3. Is it normal to need 46 db gain in my Apollo pre-amp to get the mic's level ok?
4. Is it true I can leave both systemwide & DAW plugin open/running at the same time? Does one get bypassed?
5. Should I leave it on only while seated in the sweet spot?
6. Is the mic "omni" and is it suitable for any recording duties or only a test mic?
