Recording Drum Room Mics: Mid/Side Configuration
I am getting interested in building a hardware stereo image widener circuit. I have seen a few ideas floating around based on the Middle(M) +Side(S) technique. The basic premise can be summarized into the following equations:
Encoding M and S
Middle = L+R
Side = L-R
Translating that into basic op-amp circuits, the Middle signal could be created with a summing amplifier.
Really looking forward to understand Mid-Side.
“The signal from Early and Late reverberation modules is blended together in the Mixer, which provides, apart from controlled Levels, also Stereo Balance parameters for both reflection types, which can work in L-R or M-S domain.” (Quite from a write up)
My camcorder audio is poor so I am looking into upgrading it.
I have selected the Zoom T24 as the audio recording device and am investigating microphone techniques. Since the audience participation is such an important part of a bar performance, it would be nice to capture that ambient field/feel directly. I settled on the 'mid-side' technique as my probable solution, with a twist.
I'm working in Cubase 8 Pro on a Mac.
We had this category a while back called showcase your work.
It's been a while since I presented a recording on my own and after a while commenting on others, I thought I was due to post something
This has been done with a friend last night. One take voc/guitar live recording with an added back vocal.
Very little mixing done.
I know it's not perfect but it's always fun to hear what you get from a recording setup and not from hours of mixing.
Comments are welcome ! ;)
i'm new, and i'm from abroad so please forgive my english.
right to the problem:
i have mixed a track and, for the first time, tried M/S for mastering, but it didn't work right.
the imaging changed drastically and went to one side.
the mid group as well as the side group channel are both fine when soloed,
however when both play the imaging changes.
here's how i set it up:
i disabled the mixed track's routing to stereo out
i created two stereo groups (mid and side)
I've been using this setup more and more in the last year and I thought I'd share a little thing I found.
First for those who doesn't know how M/S capture is done :

Now my secret : It doesn't work ! (well not perfectly that is)
Got your attention ?
