live audio

I have an audio question.

I recorded a live show for a friend of mine. the camera I used is an S5 (here if it's relevant) that records audio with 2 mics in dual channels. The overall sound level throughout the evening was consistent, so I approximated a manual mic sensitivity.

Reason for the question is, the balance between vocals and music is not what I heard, and tbh, I don't really like and don't want to put my name on it. In the future, for a heavy/death metal show, would auto sensitivity work better, and is there any way to adjust the balance of audio in post processing?
FWIW, I've always had great audio from this camera, especially when the sensitivity's locked.
