Things That May Cause An Echo
When running an Event on Demio, an uncommon thing that may happen is an echo. In this article, we will go over a few external factors that may cause an echo and how to solve them. The most common issue is that if the volume on your external speakers is too high, it can cause an echo. Below are some of our instructions that will improve the quality of the recording in your next Session! 😊
Try a USB headset
Built-in microphones on your computer or webcam can pick up other noise and cause an echo. You can try using a USB headset plugged into your computer or headphones with a mic included plugged into your computer. This can help eliminate additional noise from outside sources!
Unplug and plug in your microphone again
Try unplugging your headset or standalone microphone from the computer or device and then plugging it back in. If possible, try using a different USB port! 🎤
Move the microphone (if using a standalone mic)
If you are using a standalone microphone (i.e. not the built-in one on your computer or a headset), try moving it further away from your mouth. Also be sure to move any hand-held electronic devices (such as a mobile device) away from mic and speakers, as this can cause feedback. 📴
Lower the volume of the built-in speakers
The built-in speakers on your computer might be playing back the sound that your built-in mic is picking up, which could cause an echo. By turning the volume down, you help reduce that feedback loop!
Check for sources of potential background noise
Prior to starting your Session, there could be something in your environment that is causing unwanted noise, such as a fan blowing directly into their microphone or other voices if you are in a public area. If your cannot move away from these sources of noise, muting your microphone when not speaking will prevent that additional noise from disrupting the Session!
