Except there are two linked settings, right? (I don't have a 722 to 
look at). The 722 manual suggests using "link stereo pair"  to record 
discretely with the ch 1 input knob functioning a ganged volume for 
both inputs and the ch 2 knob functioning as balance.  It says use 
"link m-s" to encode to L-R with the same knob behavior.

Of course, one can undo encoding way, so adopting a good system for 
making and naming the files is probably just as important!  I record 
mono files discretely and mark them as," 20060707_FileName-M.wav" and 
"20060707_FileName-S.wav." This reduces confusion because any stereo 
output files I make default to the correct naming whether they are 
interleaved or split.

I forget, does Peak create new files on the scratch disk when 
importing split stereo files or directly display the original files? 
If the former, one might as well record in poly and have the two 
channels "tied" for easier file management and use file naming to 
identify that its M-S. Rob D.
