I thought so, I just wanted to try out as many options as possible, but on the other hand I didn't want to sit on my phone constantly during a concert

I personally was only able to test this while blasting my car stereo at (for me) insane volumes. This still would not compare to a live concert. I was able to get decent quality audio at RMS levels of -6 dB, but I always start out at the default level. Not sure whether that may make a difference.

I also tried it on my home speakers (100W) and yes, -6dB was fine. but concert is a completely different story. my first videos were on -6dB (i mean RMS lvl) but they were terrible (even though the red light didn't show at all)

One idea I'm kicking around is to show a "concert" button before the aMGC UI comes up. If pressed, the levels will be low right out of the gate. What do you guys think?

100% yes

What about a simple app that let you preconfigure the levels? So it wouldn't be too low (not all concerts require the same settings). I'm thinking in a app similar to the current interface (A VU meter, the current levels and a couple of keys to change the level). That would let us know the right levels without a test recording

Concert button sounds great anyway

If you don't want or need aMGC (see OP), then you are done. The mod is automatically applied as soon as you use the Google Camera app as a camcorder.
