If you want to do your mid/side decoding in post, don't use the mid/side function in the F8.  Just record the two tracks like any two-channel stereo (making note, of course, of which track is the side).

a simple solution, thanks for the quick help! Btw, I love the result of M/S Stereo for a Room Micro. Beside other spot mics for the instruments it gives a nice addition for the whole Mix.
Yesterday I taped a Jazz Quintet and used a Sennheiser MKH40 for Mid and Haun 603/KA800 for Side Mic.

The conventional wisdom is to always record the MID to track 1/LEFT and the Side to track 2/RIGHT.

Most MS decoder plugins work with this format.

Personally I never use MS decoding while recording - I always want to be able to process at home later when I can hear what I'm doing.

The Mid/Side decoder in the recorder can be inserted either at the input stage (in which case you are recording Left/Right signals instead of Mid/Side, and will be monitoring audio from those channels as Left/Right) or inserted at the channel output to the mix bus (in which case you are recording Mid and Side signals but monitoring/outputting Left/Right signals).

If you've already recorded the matrixed Left/Right, you can convert it back to Mid/Side again.  You can do so either via direct playback from the machine using the Mid/Side decoder in the machine on the playback side (M/S > M/S decoder > L/R), or in your DAW.

That way you can "re-tweak" the Mid/Side ratio slightly if necessary when converting back to L/R again via another pass through a M/S decoder.
