Lower sound quality

Issue #565 wontfix
Former user created an issue

Hello. Although i always record the main sound for my films via a separate mic and recording device, i often use the built in mic to help sync up the sound, usually i Clap my hands just after ive started filming. One thing ive noticed, (obvious really) is that i can film at a much higher bitrate when sound is disabled, so would it be possible to have the camera record the sound at a lower quality/bitrate so that i can have the video recording at a higher bitrate whilst also recording the sound?

I use both the t2i and 5D Mkii, so if this is possible for either cameras, id be very happy.

    Sound is recorded uncompressed (48khz 16bit signed PCM stereo), so it's not possible to alter the compression rate. Changing the codec is not possible.
