I guess this a two part question.
Love my Panasonic TM700 but I'm confused about the audio. Importing a RAW MTS file into audacity nets 6 channels. I gather this is from the internal 5.1 mic setup? Been reading around that it's not true 5.1, So... confused on this, how do you retain this "5.1" with just a external stereo mic?
I recorded a loud concert and my audio is FILLED with these "pops". From my understanding it is the circuitry protecting itself by clipping ranges that are too loud (?). Will an external mic help in this area?
Thank you for any suggestions and help.
