Spacious Stereo Recording Using the Mid Side Microphone Technique


In this tutorial we look at how to set up a bi-directional or figure-eight pattern microphone and a cardioid microphone to achieve a stereo mid side microphone technique. We will talk about why this technique is useful, I will show you an example of a recording an acoustic guitar, and we will talk about why this method of recording is more mono-compatible.
