In these popular variants of the Schoeps Double M/S CMIT technique, the M channel consists of a CMIT series shotgun.
The three channels are usually decoded and routed as follows:
- CMIT: >> Center
- M/S from CMIT + CCM 8 is M/S-dematrixed to L/R
- M/S from CCM 4 + CCM 8 is M/S dematrixed to LS/RS
It is possible to use the SCHOEPS Double M/S plug-in, but you should be aware of these aspects:
- Usually, the signal of the shotgun signal should be in the Center alone. To achieve this in the plug-in, the directional characteristic for C must be set to 0.5 (cardioid).
- In the mix for LS/RS, the plug-in usually also adds the signal from the shotgun -> this is not always advantageous.
