MS or stereo pair

Hi,
i'd like to record outside ambient but i'm not be sure which kind of microphone buy (MS or a stereo pair).
With a microphone like Sanken CMS-50, is it audible from which side come from the sound like with a stereo pair microphones ?

Thumbs up

For outdoor work I would use an MS rig as it's much easier to handlr.

I use a Sennheiser MKH 40/30 rig in a Rycote.

Get something Ambisonic.

It'll cover you for whatever format you will need: mono, stereo, surround, or immersive.

It's Mid/Side in three dimensions.

Yes.

An explanation of MS stereo might help: https://www.uaudio.com/blog/mid-side-mic-recording/

Once matrixed it will behave like a XY stereo pair

In American English, we would say "which side the sound comes from"...

The side does not come from the sound, the sound comes from the sides.
Hope this helps.

I use a Shure VP-88 for this. It's about half the cost.
