Recording in stereo - Real Acoustic Performances

It seemed sensible, before starting to do the video on recording choirs, to explain a little about the differing techniques you can use to record 'real' stereo - as in recording the placement of individual sound sources within a stereo soundfield. Quite different from our usual multitrack method of panning the various tracks to their proper location.

Stereo vs. Mono Di ? Stereo bleeding ?

Hi gang,
I'm looking to step up the quality of Di I own and since like always I don't want to spend too much. I'm thinking of buying a stereo DI instead of 2 mono.
This could be the one I choose : Radial ProD2 Passive 2 Channel Direct Box
My concern is, could there be bleeding between the channels if I put 2 completely different sources instead of a stereo source ?

Stereo/mono question - Cubase

Ok, so I just recorded a bunch of tracks in Cubase on my bass guitar. However, I'm an idiot and had all the tracks as stereo even though bass is a mono instrument. Also, on my M-audio USB fastrack which I'm using to record, I had it set on stereo. When I recorded and played it back the sound would only come out of one earphone and the other one would just play constant white noise/static.
