Ask Your Stereo Recording Questions

Everyone who has done any any amount of stereo recording has encountered some stereo recording questions. I've done some, and I've came across many questions of my own.

We all need help along the way in our path to learning to record well. Sharing with each other is a tremendous stepping stone in the road.

So that's where this comes into play - you can ask your questions, and I'll post them up as a page on this site, along with a personal answer. Then, anyone else may come along and read the question and answer, and can even post comments or alternatives.

I welcome your questions, and will do my best to answer every one of them.

So what are you waiting on? Ask away...
