Zoom Room can optimize microphone sound quality when microphones don’t have integrated software audio processing. With Zoom Room software, you can cancel echo, reduce noise, and automatically adjust gain. Zoom Room audio processing can be disabled so that it does not interfere with the microphone’s built-in audio processing if the microphone has one.
Prerequisites for enabling advanced software audio processing
- Version 4.0.37666.0630 or later of Zoom Rooms for Mac required
- Version 4.0.44731.0823 or later of Zoom Rooms for PC
- Or version 4.2.37605.0629 or later of Zoom Rooms for iPad
How to enable advanced software audio processing
- Tap on the Settings button on the iPad controller.
- When the lock is turned off, you can make changes to the settings. To do this, you must enter the passcode for the iPad.
- Tap the microphone.
- You can tap the name of the microphone that you want to adjust if the room has multiple microphones (including devices that have an integrated microphone).
- Certain devices identified by Zoom are automatically disabled from using Advanced Software Audio Processing. A speakerphone with built-in speaker and microphone typically includes its own audio processing. Audio devices with built-in speakers and microphones automatically have this feature.
- Turn off the Software Audio Processing option for microphones that have their own audio processing. Leave it on for every other microphone.
- Select Advanced Software Audio Processing from the drop down.
- Lock the settings after you’ve made any changes.
Note: Previously, Zoom Rooms software offered software echo cancellation and an option to automatically adjust microphone levels.
