What are some sound sources you would never want to record in Stereo?
and the next part of the question:
What are some sound sources you would never want to record in Mono?
My rule of thumb is ambiences are stereo. Spot effects are mono. But, some explosions could sound so much cooler in stereo.
I was taught by a music engineer so I know what stereo recording can do - so how do you apply stereo recording to field recording? Do you ONLY record ambiences in stereo? Or are there some sources that benefit in stereo?
