    I use for the O.Hs (the last year) a Neumann Stereo Mic (SM 69 fet) and ofcourse X/Y.
    What you think about that?
    By the way I didn' t notice a diskution for X/Y mic technique. Nobody loves it? :cry:
    In some Studios I saw 3 Mics for the O.Hs L/R and one in the middle.

    I sometimes use 4...two SDC's and two LDC"S....the SDC's are left and right while the LDC's are geneally front and rear...

    X-Y for overheads don't quite give the imaging space that I like. Right now my preference is using the the RecorderMan technique for overheads.

    For Acoustic Gtr or other instruments where some space is desired but not real wide, X-Y or M&S is usually my first goto... with M&S as the first choice when the source is relatively close and singular.

    To sum it up... it just depends on how and where in the mix I think it will sit and how many mix options I may want to consider
