What are those "IN 1/2 MS Matrix" and "L/R MS-RAW MONITOR" functions on a Zoom H5?

I have the H5 and I looked at the manual for you. The functions relating to MS Raw monitoring assume that you have started with the MS mike capsule. That is not the standard mike capsule that comes ...

Is mid-side always better than XY?

As a purely practical matter, in my experience recording with Zoom M/S and X/Y, if there is a lot of crowd noise to the sides and in back of the mic, X/Y will have less of it in the recording. One ...

Using a Rode NGT 2 and Zoom h4n pro and very flat quality. Solutions?

Ideally you should be using a large capsule mic with a pop-shield for this application, not a super-cardioid shotgun mic. Also, ensure that you record with adequate headroom and don't push the level ...
