    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The BP4025 is an XY stereo microphone (left and right) and not a mid side mic (cardioid and figure of eight. The stereo image is fixed. Your options for a 2 track recorder would be left and right channels, where you could adjust the volume and the pan of each channel.
