Cool to see this play out.

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

The only 3 channel preamp I’ve ever seen is an RCA from the 1930’s, back when that covered an announcer and 2 radio studios! Everyone is prejudiced towards even channel counts above 1, so it doesn’t exist that I know of.

A front end pre and an option for line in would give ultimate flexibility.

The encoder, which is a passive design, is about $1400.

Thanks for the block diagram.

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

Front/rear flip is maybe the simple way to change front/rear perspective (or correct backwards placement) without adding to the actives.



wow, that Schoeps DMS Splitter Box for Double-M/S is north of $500.......

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

I think all that works. I added front/rear flip and S polarity for L/R flip. I’d probably vote for omni CCW and figure 8 CW. I kept drawing this and realizing I had redundant features, then redraw. May help. EA0E3B6B-94D7-47AB-A792-10DD6CB76E9C.jpeg The build-out from here would be 3 preamps built i...

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

Think about that again. S only changes LR orientation. R polarity changes mid pattern on the 8 side.

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

RAW to a wild recorder is easily synced for post, I have to do that all the time. The ability to split it from the same encoder, no matter where it goes, is what seems important. I wasn't thinking of a polarity control for side - I'd swap the pan orientation at the console or swap the cables - but o...

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

Yes, 5 outputs covers raw and encoded MS. Ideal. The raw can always go to a separate free-sync recorder in a limited console input situation. Agree on +/- 6 control for F and R, though it would be redundant on S if there was a width control. One or the other. Pattern control only on the LR. True on ...

Re: What about a dual mid-side encoder project?

I have the variable MKH 800 Twin, and several other mics like it, but I can't use them for DMS in a live mix with most digital consoles. A stepped switch that covers those patterns and those in between would inspire confidence and provide flexibility, though a fully variable tight tolerance pot woul...

Pages 5 and 6 here detail the gain and polarity changes:
