I am using LE1 to record saxophone quartet in stereo. I’ve used small diphragm cardioids in X-Y up to now with sort of OK results, but I’ve read that mid-side recording is a better technique for this purpose and will not only produce more effective stereo but will also give more control over the stereo image in the processing stage.
I have large diphragm cardioid and figure 8 mikes so I can mike up for a mid-side recording, but I’m not sure if I can decode them in LE1. I think the usual mid-side technique is to duplicate the side track and then put one of them out of phase but I’m not sure what you do after that, or even whether I can do it at all in LE1.
Any advice on how to, (or if it’s possible to), process a mid-side recording in LE1 would be most welcome. Thanks in advance.
