    For anyone interested in ACTUAL 'stereo' the current issue of Sound on Sound has an excellent article about it and introduces the "Gerzon Array" a technique I was unaware of until now.

    I was familiar with the name 'Gerzon' and his mathematics regarding surround sound...NOT that I understood a line of it !

    Blue20Boy17, can you describe how you are setting up the mics? Are you truly doing stereo on each instrument, such as X/Y or ORTF, DIN or RAI to give the sense of space, or are you just setting up dual mics for achieving a sonic balance on each instrument but mixed mono?

    I wouldn't think layering multiple coincident or near coincident mic pairs would be an optimal way to record. If you have multiple players at one time, I would use one stereo pair to preserve a really good sounding space and possibly add two more just as "spot" mics to allow you to adjust relative instrument balance if needed . Otherwise I would close mic up to 4 players, and use reverb and panning to create space.

    I tried to read the article, but since I'm not a subscriber, I could only read 20% of the article... bummer.
