IMPROVING AUDIO PC AND ANDROID
graham - 08/07/2020
Hi Folks,
Help for Android and Mac users.
There is a setting on Zoom that allows it to transmit music far better than the default settings. It’s called Original Sound and is turned on via a simple menu on Android tablets. Look at the bottom right of the Zoom screen and you will find 3 dots with the word MORE written underneath. Tap that and a simple menu pops up. Tap “Enable Original Sound” and your instrument will sound ten times better. You will probably need to do this every time you rejoin a Zoom session.
On Mac there should be a little band top left of the Zoom Screen with the words “Turn On Original Sound” Click and the word on changes to Off. We want it to read Off which means we have set it to On. Confusing I know.
If you can’t see the Band top left go to the little ^ between the mic and video icons bottom left. That brings up a menu. Go to Audio settings and then Advanced. This brings up a menu that says.
Show in Meeting option to "Enable Original Sound" from Microphone
Make sure the tick box is ticked and when you close down the menus the "Turn on original Sound"
band should now be available.

Mac users would also be well advised to go to their System Preferences and check that their output balance and volume are set correctly.
Hope this helps
Graham

1. Apologies but I seem to have lost the option of posting under a new topic heading and this is just to post the link for the Covid Symptom Study being conducted by Kings College for those who are interested in finding out more:

Note: the website won't allow me to post full link here but the above will bring it up

2. As An add on to Grahams post:
On a Windows PC it should be very similar. There should be a little band top left of the Zoom Screen with the words “Turn On Original Sound” Click and the word on changes to Off. We want it to read Off which means we have set it to On.
If you can’t see the Band top left go to the little ^ between the mic and video icons bottom left. That brings up a menu. Go to Audio settings and then Advanced. This brings up a menu that says.

3. Looks like the same instruction as a Mac. That's a first! (graham - 08/07/20)
