 Sound Devices 744, with the front in mid/side mode MKH 30/40, backed up wi=

 this config would be appreciated. I have learned to really love Mid-side, =
thank you Bernie.
My four-channel rig is two MKH 8020s on a Jecklin disk as a front imaging a=
rray, and two widely spaced 8020s as uncorrelated rear channels. We both fo=

ite imaging array for the front, then spaced omnis for the rears.

The MS =93single point=94 pair is much easier to handle than a Jecklin, whi=
ch has to be broken down for transport. I prefer the Jecklin because it has=
 ear-spaced mics, more spatially harmonious with headphone listening which =
is so common now. On speakers the difference between them is little. ORTF i=
s an ear-spaced array that is as conveniently packaged as MS; our listmate =
Greg Weddig uses that to great effect.
