I wanted to experiment with M/S as I had not tried it before so set up a cheap rig using a couple of Oktavas with the figure of 8 adapter.
I've done a few recordings outside my window and mastered them to LCR as per the Tim Neilson M/S article on Designing Sound.
I wondered if I could get some feedback on the recording as to my ears the stereo does not sound wide at all and I wondered if this is what M/S recordings usually sound like. Obviously I've tried balancing the Mid to the side increase the width but I'm just not sure if I have the mics set up properly.
I wondered whether I had not achieved a proper stereo image due to the placement of the mid mic in relation to the side. Any advice and feedback appreciated.
