zoom audio settings
Here's a link to a list of helpful gear and how to set things up (spacing and distance) for best sound.
Getting the most out of zoom audio settings:
It is important to use a laptop or desktop for your video feed. These settings cannot be accessed from a phone. You can use a phone or ipad (connected to a blue tooth speaker for volume) for your accompaniment tracks.
1. open audio settings. Audio settings are accessed using the arrow next to the mic/mute icon) on the bottom left of the screen and click bottom item in drop down menu (audio settings).
2. Microphone Settings:
Go to microphone. It should automatically select your external usb mic if you have one connected, but if it does not, select the one you want to use.
Un-click the "automatically adjust microphone volume" box.
Adjust the volume to about 60% of maximum. Once your settings are complete, it's a good idea to leave this box open and monitor your input level.
You'll want a level that does not go all the way to the right when you make your biggest/highest sounds. One little box level away is fine.
Go to bottom of settings page and click "advanced.
4.Once on the Advanced Settings page, set circled items to "disable."
5. Fine tuning: Go to the "back" button and keep the settings page open to monitor your microphone level. Once you've determined your best input level, zoom usually remembers from session to session. However, it's a good idea to do a quick check at the beginning of your lesson.
