at that point, it should be the same as just running it stereo, but man, sounds TOTALLY GREAT."
I'm trying to figure out exactly how to do this using Logic and a M/S encode/decoder tool. Am I meant to use the M/S tool to send the mid signal to the compressor then bring it back to the computer and add it back to the Sides?
If anyone has the time to break it down into simpleton speak in a step by step guide, I'd be very appreciative.
So I had a bit of a think about what this may entail.
I'm guessing that by linking the L/R at 100% its to avoid any stereo action happening, so therefore the user must be talking about affecting the mids and using the 100% L/R function to avoid adding any additional side information.
So basically compress the mid signal, leave sides alone.. Am I right?
