Improving My Live Streaming Sound.

word on the street is that my live-streaming sound is a bit thin, and could be improved.
Here's the sound,…
I'm singing through a Neumann U87, the guitar is through a AKG C3000. The Neumann goes via a JoeMeek VC3. Both mics go through a Yamaha MG10 mixer, using its internal reverb (plate setting) and eq, then out via the mixers USB into OBS running on Windows 10. In OBS there's a gain boost and the internal limiter.
Would the sound improve, get that hi-tech sheen, if I use something like a Foscurite Scarlett between the computer and mixer, or would the sound still be limited in quality by the weakest link (either the mixer or computer). Or perhaps a dedicate channel strip on the Neumann (which carries most of the sound), something with compression and eq, would improve the sound, and I could put the VC3 (which has compression and an exciter but no eq) onto the AKG to add presence to the guitar.
Your esteemed opinions would be gratefully received.

Re, needing bass:

I only listened to you via my iPhone so this opinion can’t be trusted but from what I hear is simply put… “needing background bass in other instrumentation/music”.
People that don’t have a big voice they can sound much better when their voice has bass instruments with it.

Write music or sing songs that have bass lines, drums or other instruments/ backup vocals with bass. Your voice will sound much better.

A bit of reverb or delay effect would be helpful too.

Hope that helps.
