Thank you so much for registering to perform at our first ever Open Mic Night Online. With a little preparation, together we can make this an awesome experience. Please follow the suggestions and guidelines and watch the video to make sure you are set up optimally.
ONLY do your performance on a laptop or desktop computer.
Cell phones and tablets have settings built inside to compress and filter background noises and we are unable to change those settings on those devices.
Watch the video I made to help set up your preferences on the Zoom app. This will give you optimum sound.
Airstream or connect via HDMI your device to your smart TV for a great viewing experience. Remember to set the sound to your TV’s speakers when doing this.
One thing I forgot to add to the video though not a game changer if you are not able to do it. When in the preferences window for Zoom. Under the Audio tab. Lower the microphone volume to about 25% or lower and uncheck the automatically adjust microphone volume box. This will decrease any chance of your music clipping or distorting to the listener.
Make sure you do your performance in a well lit area. Important to have a light in front of you and not behind you.
