"The Teaser!" by Laids Cretins des Alpes

Your school grades you 0 to 100%. But what does a real-world client think of your work?

Stereo microphones

Description and application of the stereo microphone.

Two capsules may be combined into a single housing so that one mic can capture both left and right sides of the sound field.

This is much more convenient than setting two mics on a stereo bar, but obviously less flexible.

Some stereo mics use the MS principle where one cardioid capsule (M) captures the full width of the sound stage while the other figure-of-eight capsule (S) captures the side-to-side differences.

The MS output can be processed to give conventional left and right signals.
