Digitizing in stereo also allows decrackling and declipping of the groove walls independently then re-combining them to get back the hill and dale.
I fix a lot of mono lateral recordings by converting to MS and treating the vertical and horizontally independently then recombining. Often the garbage in the vertical can be isolated and added back into the lateral out of polarity and it cleans up dramatically.

You don't need to physically re-wire your cartridge unless you intend to just listen to the music. When I'm recording, I have the volume low because I am more concerned with listening to the final product. When I said out of phase I meant out of phase for vertical records. I have one turtable I use for almost all recording and like to keep is simple - I still have about 100 diamond discs - would you like a list? -Mickey

>> If you're using a computer, you can record in stereo (out of phase) , then using a wave editor, invert the phase of one channel, then combine for mono.
>> I know the process - and the sound will be horrible until you combine the tracks for mono - then all the noices will miraculously disappear!!! I use the same cartridge for modern stereo and verticals - saves a lot of hassle to do it this way and you don't need a designated cartridge wired for verticals - Mickey Clark
