Measures to prevent the piano sound from cracking or disappearing in Zoom

Many piano instructors participate in the Zoom organizer seminar.
However, the sounds of musical instruments such as pianos cannot be delivered beautifully with Zoom.
It takes a little trick to get the delicate piano sound to the other party with Zoom.

When you want to deliver the sound of an instrument like a piano to the other party with Zoom.

If you use the microphone attached to the webcam, the sound will crack or the extended sound will disappear immediately.

Since the microphone of the WEB camera is for listening to the conversation beautifully, it cuts out loud voices and sounds that are not necessary for the conversation.

 

With Zoom, there are two elements to make the sound of the instrument as beautiful as possible.

  1. What kind of microphone do you use?
  2. Zoom settings for listening to music

 

Of these, Zoom settings are made in Audio settings.

Try changing the microphone you use.

And the option is ” Do not change the original sound from the microphone “.

With Zoom, I used various microphones, changed the settings, and recorded the piano sound in 7 patterns.

Listen to what it actually sounds like.

SONY ECM-PCV80U

SONY microphone SONY ECM-PCV80U After
all, it is completely different from the conversation microphone.
SONY Electlet Condenser Microphone PCV80U ECM-PCV80U

 

Microphone used: SONY ECM-PCV80U
Do not change the original sound from the microphone: OFF    

I thought that the SONY ECM-PCV80U could be used, so I compared the ON and OFF of ” Enable echo cancellation ” with this microphone.

Microphone used: SONY ECM-PCV80U
Do not change the original sound from the microphone: ON Enable
echo cancellation: ON    

Microphone used: SONY ECM-PCV80U
Do not change the original sound from the microphone: ON Enable
echo cancellation: OFF    

In conclusion···

After all, no matter what the settings of the WEB microphone, it seems impossible to listen to music.

In order to listen to music, it is essential to prepare a microphone for music.

★ SONY ECM-PCV80U is not a microphone for music.

Then, in the audio settings, turn on ” Do not change the original sound from the microphone “.

If you leave this off, I feel that the sound disappears when you extend the sound.

The ” Enable echo cancellation ” option didn’t really make a difference.

The ears of those who play music may notice a clear difference.
