I have an AKGC200B (cardoid condenser) and am buying a Rode NT2-A (multi-pattern) which just happens to have a figure 8 pattern avaiable. If I wanted to set these up for MS recording does my sound card *need* to have an MS decoder, or can I deal with arranging the L & R channels properly after I record the signal, which will be in Soundforge. I have a MOTU 828MKII btw.. What about setup? From what I've read so far the Rode would need to fade left/right with respect to the source, and be set above the AKG which faces the source, both as close together as possible. Any tips or anything you can offer is greatly appreciated.
