”Double M/S” is an improved version of the well-known M/S stereo recording technique. In addition to a front-facing ”mid” microphone (here this is a shotgun microphone) and a figure-8 ”side” microphone, a rear-facing directional microphone is set up. The front- and rear-facing microphones share the signal of the figure-8 microphone so as to form two complete, back-to-back M/S systems. One M/S system then provides the three front channels (the center channel signal being provided directly by the mid microphone of the front system), while the other system provides the two surround channels. An arrangement of this kind allows flexible processing of the stereo surround image width and post-production adjustment for both of the M/S pairs.

This recording setup is available as a Double M/S Set: which consists of the following items:
– 1 × CMIT 5 U shotgun microphone
– 1 × CCM 8L figure-8 compact microphone
– 1 × CCM 4L cardioid compact microphone
– shock mount for a CMIT 5 U shotgun microphone with KMSC clips for the two compact microphones
– adapter cable from two Lemo plugs and one XLR-3 plug to one XLR-7 output
– WSR DMS CMIT LU basket-type windscreen
– WJ DMS CMIT ”Windjammer” windscreen cover
– K DMS 5 U; 5-meter (16.5') XLR-7 extension cable
– DMS passive splitter box
