I recently downloaded the bx_solo plug-in to help simplify the process of m/s decoding. First off I must confess I'm new to the m/s technique to begin with but feel I have a pretty good handle on the key points.
What I'd like is some clarification on is how to set up the tracks to record.
Do I need to record a stereo track with Mid mic panned hard left and Side mic panned hard right?
...or is it still necessary to record two mono tracks, Mid and Side, and bus to a stereo Aux with the duplicate of the phase corrected Side signal?
Since I didn't come across a quick tutorial on the plugin I wasn't sure. It seems to me that the purpose of the plug-in is, of course, to simplify the process by being self contained within one stereo track that the two mics are recorded to directly.
Thank you sevendaysoff for the reference material, however, my question still stands...
Here's the scenario; my Mid mic is on CH1, my Side mic is on Ch2
Do I, 1: Send both channels to a stereo track, record, and then apply bx_solo plugin
Or 2: Record CH1 & 2 on separate mono tracks, replicate and phase correct the Side signal, bus all three tracks to an Aux stereo track and then apply bx_solo plugin
Again, my question is purely in context of properly setting up the tracks whilst using the bx_solo plugin.
