In this Dropbox folder are samples of my WSP 6/22/16 Starlight KCMO matrices. I was hoping that the TS could provide feedback on which is preferable. I'm always having trouble deciding this kind of thing so the help would be very much appreciated.

There are two songs sampled. Blight from Set I and Fishwater from Set II. Titles should explain most everything. The ones just labeled MTX are the CM-100s/CP-1s with the CM-300/CP-2 center omni. Those have the center omni as a mono file mixed about 50/50 with the stereo file of the 100s. The other two options are with the omni bumped down -3db and up +2db.

I'm inclined to go with the 50/50 or the -3db, as the omni mixed higher are a little boomy and I think the omni compliments the cardioid sound better if it doesn't drown it out. Thanks in advance.

Listening to the Nak omnis only source right now. This has to be one of the best versions of Fishwater I've ever seen or heard, Jojo adding a ton.

They all sound quite nice!  I can't articulate exactly why, but the "happy medium" of the 50/50 sounds best to my ears.

Thanks Scott. I'll probably be going with that one. Just curious what others do in this situation.
