Marcel explains this wonderful stereo technique (and reminds us about using delay compensation if decoding MS on a DAW like Protools or Logic.) MS is a powerful tool as it leaves the mix engineer with the choice of how narrow or wide the stereo image is. It's a bit more work, but it gets some great results! Thanks again to London School of Sound, Red Dog Music and the lovely Astrid Madberg for help and assistance in many forms.
