With standard stereo drum panning (in a typical pop recording)...
All answers are correct
Processing the Mid will affect primarily the kick and snare
M/S processing can affect different kitpieces, depending on wheret they are in the stereo image
Processing the Side will affect primarily the cymbals and any ambience
The M/S signal on a stereo vinyl record is encoded as...
a Lateral (side-to-side) Left channel and a Vertical Right channel
a Lateral (side-to-side) Mid channel (for mono compatibility) and a Vertical Side channel
a Lateral (side-to-side) Side channel and a Vertical Mid channel (for mono compatibility)
The Mid part of a signal is…
The left signal
The right channel
The sum of left and right
The difference between left and right
M/S processing can be implemented in Logic…
only in third-party plugins that include the feature in the plug-in's main panel
on any stereo channel via instantiating a stereo plug-in in Dual-Mono mode and choosing M/S
only on stereo plug-ins that include the feature in the plug-in's main panel
M/S processing can be used...
on stereo drum overheads
on stereo stems
All of the other answers are correct
on full stereo mixes
With M/S EQ, it's possible to
apply EQ at different frequencies but with the same gain settings to the Mid and Side channels
apply completely different EQ frequency and gain settings to the Mid and Side channels
apply EQ at the same frequencies but with different gain settings to the Mid and Side channels
M/S stands for...
A coincident stereo M/S mic pair consists of...
a directional (Cardioid) mic pointing forward + a bi-directional (Figure-8) mic pointing sideways
two (usually) directional (Cardioid) mics positioned where a pair of human ears would be
two bi-directional (Figure-8) mics in at 90° angles
With M/S processing, increasing the gain of the Side signal
will narrow the stereo image and possibly decrease ambience
change the level of hard-panned elements without affecting the width of the stereo image
will widen the stereo image and possibly add some ambience and depth
The two channels on a stereo vinyl record…
are encoded as an M/S signal with the Mid on side A and the Side on side B
are encoded as a L-R signal in two continuous side-by-side grooves
are encoded as an M/S signal in a single continuous groove
Compressing only the M or S signal can
reduce pumping compression effects
Make a mix louder
increase pumping compression effects
Logic's Dual-Mono plug-in format…
inserts two linked mono plug-ins on the left & right sides of a stereo channel
inserts two linked mono plug-ins one after the other on a mono channel
allows for separarately processing the left & right sides of a stereo channel
With a typical pop mix, M/S processing might be used to
add clarity to wide-panned guitars/keys/harmonies without making the snare and lead vocal too bright
All answers are correct
compress the kick & snare and widen the stereo image, adding apparent depth and ambience
slightly narrow a mix where the side elements are too widely panned, with gaps in the stereo soundstage
M/S processing can be useful on stereo Stems, which are
different takes of the same recorded part, before they've been comped into a final arrangement
stereo submixes of several related instrument or vocal tracks (i.e. all guitars or all vocal harmonies)
different sections of a longer project or song (i.e. verse, chorus, bridge, intro, outro)
In M/S mode in Logic's Compressor how could you process only the Mid?
By bypassing the Side in the Configuration panel or setting the Side Mix knob to Input-only
By setting the Side Ouput Gain knob to off
You can't—you have to process both Mid & Side
