Coincident is an audio concept that is often associated with stereo recording microphones. What this means is that the distance between the two microphone capsules for stereo recording should be as short as possible to avoid serious phase out-of-synchronization problems in the final recording. In order to achieve this, there are usually two main methods: the first one, two directional microphones (such as a cardioid microphone) are stacked at an angle of 90 degrees; the second type is called "MS (middle-side) "Recording method is to put a two-pointed microphone (also called "8-shaped microphone") and a cardioid microphone side by side, and then mix the sound signals from the two microphones in different proportions to change the auditory width of the stereo sound field.
