M-S Stereo: A Powerful Technique for Working in Stereo

The practical requirements of broadcast and cinema stereo sound dictate the need for good stereo imaging, as well as full monaural compatibility. Conicident miking fulfills this requirement, and the most versatile of these techniques is the M-S matrixing of a forward-facing directional microphone with a laterally oriented bidirectional microphone. The results offer both good stereo perspective and full (discrete) monaural compatibility. The importance of this technique to the recording, broadcast, and film media are discussed.
