Four Tet regularly uses Audacity and to answer Clark's question, familiarity with the software.

They should work, but do remember that just like ORTF, the stereo image is partially the result of time delays in reaching each mic diaphragm (the two parts of a stereo image being a sound source's projected amplitude and resulting time delay between reaching capsules). With XY and MS, there is no time delay playing into the stereo image result. When time ...
