Specifically, Synchron FX Strings, not that that matters a lot.
So, I have yet to purchase the Full with the back, high, surround etc. 
I'm wondering this, since I have MIR Pro can I get more or less the spatiality of a surround-to-stereo configuration just through MIR? Corollary to this, what technically takes place should I choose eg., one of the Rears 5.0 presets for the secondary mic but I am not set up in surround at all? Is this pretty meaningless? Besides 'if it sounds good it's good' I'd like to have some facts about what happens. I haven't found anything anywhere to address this.
I would guess the the 'surround to stereo' downmix is not something MIR is going to perform just putting a surround configuration in there but I don't want to throw money at trying to get more depth if there's a way in MIR.
It seems clear enough 'high' is not going to come from MIR in the same way.

You could try MIR microphones that don't match the Synchron Series' Decca-Tree position for more spatial enveloping, but truth be told: This won't give you the same effect as the "Surround" mics of Synchron series - partly due to the fact that there's no dry source signal, partly because the Synchron surrounds are spaced Omnis, while MIR is all about coincident microphones.

Kind regards,

Thanks, I can see that. And, regardless of theory, the 5.0 Rears is adding nothing that isn't apparent to me using the Lateral 8s.
