Mid/Side vs. L/R
      21/12/11 12:13 PM
I understand more or less how mid/side works, or at least it's fundamental difference from left/right, but what advantage does it offer over left/right stereo? And what sort of things factor into choosing between the two?

Does a specific m/s plug in such as Voxengo MSED work in a similar way to a typical stereo widener/spread/enhancer etc? I noticed that Logic's Direction Mixer has the option of switching between L and R, and M/S...

Perhaps i should get some experience making decent L/R stereo mixes before i start looking at mid/sign. Or maybe not?
