I never made a matrix. I presume two records are sandwiched together.
If my presumption is correct, would the evolution of matrix recordings be to use RipX or DES software to separate the frequencies (guitar, guitar, drums, bass & vocals) and delete some stems/tracks/tracks? Why have two vocals when one has a better sound?
Maybe an IEM recording just needs bass or bass and one guitar added, for example.
I recently took the matrix of 'Down Home Girl' live from Hyde Park 1969, separated the frequencies in RipX, and adjusted volumes and dropouts.
Here are the stems, the original recording (matrix), and my finished project. Feel free to make a better version in Audacity, etc. The drums disappear at the beginning of the song. The bass is great, The guitars are great sound too, The vocals I lowered but they are too distorted.
Is there any recording of 'Down Home Girl' from Hyde Park 1969 which has better vocals and drums? I've only heard the one source/recording with the blown-out vocals. Can you think of any without the blown-out vocals?
"Track 10 recorded July 5, 1969, Hyde Park, London, England. Obviously, not a 1972-1973 rarity, this song is actually from a separate project but I wanted to include it here as a bonus tr. This is a stereo matrix of two different low-generation audience recordings, possibly master recordings. The left channel, Radio Veronica broadcast from download; the right channel "In the Park" (Scorpio) pitch corrected/slowed down 0.1% to match. This concert is well documented on the movie "The Stones in the Park" and was also mostly broadcast on its 10th anniversary by WLIR FM, but this song was not in the movie or broadcast. Surprisingly, The two analog tape recorders stay in sync for the entire song.

Two vinyl rip bootlegs Ccontra Band & Scorpio.
Here is Radio Veronica july 15 1969..Bonus is Funky Drummers merge of I'm Yours And I'm Hers.
Haven't downloaded your file, but to answer the question:
A Matrix is usually just the "sandwich" thing, where you just use the
complete recordings and mix them together. You can do this by doing a
complete mix or as another option put each recording in one channel, to get
more of a stereo effect. And there are endless options between these extremes.
That's the way it was for a long time. With AI (I also use RipX most of the time),
you can now indeed take extracted instruments from different recordings and put them together. I did this for my Berlin2022 Matrix , where I added a 2nd vocal
source to lower the volume of this screaming chick one the basic source.
AI opens another endless trove of options to matrix recordings, but if there is a
basic definition, it's really just synchronising different recordings and mixing them together.
And it's fun to do this with digital recordings, because they all have the same speed and you need only minor speed adjustments. It's getting painful with for example 1969 recordings as the Hyde Park69 track (I suppose).
