Now that MS stereo can be decoded in editing software (as opposed to the previously required matrix box) I wonder if more people out there are using it more and have any advise or experience with it? I find it exceptionally useful for recording in a quiet ambient room (concert hall, church) where it is desirable to obtain natural room reverb in the mix. Just the fact that room ambience can be changed and tweaked AFTER the recording offers a whole new mind-blowing set of possibilities (ie: eq's and other dsp can be applied seperately to the "room" and/or to the "subject" or sound source). My recent application involves recording solo classical guitar in a concert hall using 2 multi-pattern Neumann u89i's (one set to cardioid and one figure 8). My big question is, can MS stereo recording be mixed in surround? Anyone know about this?
