Tunguy, through a mixer you can send two mic signals to one track. I guess the need for this would bethat your recording device only have one audio channel input. (We are talking monophonic in this case, all audio sources mixed to one channel).
Of course the example you put would be extreme because you are mixing two mics with very different responses and patterns. A better practical exampleis if youhave two guys with lavaliers hooked to a mixer and theoutput goes toone channel of your recording device (Need to set the Panoramiccontrol accordingly), A more complex setup would be to record a meeting with multiple speakers and microphones, but all can be mixedto one channel and no chance to rebalance the mix levels of each mic in post later.
