Last night saw the inaugural meeting of The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. It was a hoot. Imperfect, a few glitches, a killer performance by one of the members, and a lot of fun.
Lou shared this link with instructions on how to improve setting audio for music on Zoom. If we all follow these steps, next week will be even better!
Jeff shared these tips:
Having done several I know that jamming together is not possible, if everybody has mics running, jamming together with one leader with their mic running, works. Fortunately you have the ability to mute everybody while you speak.Just in case you have not looked at it, Zoom has a feature called “Original Sound” if you have not looked at it please do, The link tutorial that I used was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50NoWIiYECA but there are others.We have also found that if members use headphones / ear buds it helps to reduce echo / bounce back from their speaker to mic.
Also look in the audio settings to turn off Background Noise Suppression, Suppress Persistent Background Noise and Suppress Intermittent Background Noise. This will do a lot to improve sound quality for everybody.
Get ready for next weeks meeting! Don’t Miss it!
