Tips on recording synths

Hi guys...

About to start recording a demo and was wondering if anybody had any tips for recording synths? (I'll be using a Juno 6 and Sh-101).

What's the best way to get a nice 'full stereo feel'?
Do people double up their takes?

Thanks in advance!
Ciao!

doubling (tripling, quadrupling, etc) up can be cool, if you make small changes to the sound between takes....

It really depends on what you're trying to do.

try it, and see if you like it.

I like the idea of changes the sound for different takes. I'll definitely give it a go.

But there are some recordings where it's definitely the one synth (ie. not doubled) and it just sounds so.. wide! perhaps it's a mixing technique or plug-in?

I often put them through an amp and use MS micing.

Or I might double them up and pick a frequency point (like 1k) and high pass one there and low pass the other.
Then throw one out of phase and hard pan them (or not).
Can be an excellent effect.

Or record as a stereo pair and delay one side by 50-500 samples, sliding it to it sounds right.
