What does stereo recording achieve? I noticed that the left and right channels of some stereo samples don't sound the same, and loaded them into audacity. The program confirms my suspicion that the sounds vary greatly in characteristics. For a vibrato filled note, most often only one of the channels displays the wavy pattern induced by the vibrato. Is this what stereo recording is supposed to do? So the sounds mixed into your music will have certain instruments placed to the L/R side of the listener?

If it has two separate channels, it's stereo, no matter what's on them.

Even if the two channels are identical? Or what if the two channels differ only at sub-audible levels (such as when a mono master tape is played back with stereo heads)?
