Thank you for your time.
First let me say that - Mono is fantastic. 80% of my recorded instruments are in mono. Great for placing in a Stereo mix. Many of today's mixes feel like 'wide-mono' to me. If I record everything in stereo I find it harder to get a really wide stereo picture. Mono is still King,,,,,,
