I’ve been meddling with many incarnations of recording acoustic guitar, but I have a conundrum I haven’t been able to figure out regarding M/S recording.
After recording M/S mic configuration, I had my 2 tracks in/out of phase, panned left & right, but when I bring up the ‘mid’ track, it sounded like it boosted one stereo side, namely the side with the ‘in phase’ recording.
Have I just missed something and screwed up this technique? It kinda made sense in my mind, in that the ‘mid’ track essentially doubled up on the ‘in phase’ side, but not the ‘out of phase’ side, a bit like coupling speakers.
But, as I am no pioneer in this field, I’m assuming I missed something somewhere!
