Firmware update with gain control

Hi all,

I've recently acquired a GoPro Hero 5 Session just to find out the disappointing audio quality. All my recordings (indoor and outdoor) are filled with static or white noise. Initially I thought it was a problem in my unit but after checking online, I found lot of people complaining about the same thing. By the way, I'm running the latest firmware update and I already tried with different SD cards as well as disabling the WiFi and the voice commands but the problem persists.

I guess the problem is originated by a very agressive gain setting, and probably there is a reason for this (enhance the outdoor records, improve the voice commands effectivity, etc). I was wondering if GoPro could release some kind of feature in the next firmware update to configure the gain (gain control) or, at least, provide 2 or 3 different presets with different settings (studio, indoor, outdoor).

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Guillem

Re: Firmware update with gain control

WE love to hear a sample. I find the gopro Hero 5 Session to have  if not better audio then the Hero 5 Black,  The Hero 4  Session and Hero 5 Session side by side   would be interesting to hear as well.
