Tips & Tricks – Zoom

During this time of COVID, instructors and DJ's are turning to virtual venues to host events.

Many have success using Facebook Live, YouTube Live and other services, but inevitably, for one reason or another, start exploring other options. 

ZOOM is recognized by many as an alternative to these other free products; however, without guidance you, and your visitors, end up having a much more frustrating experience. Before abandoning ZOOM to try another path, follow the steps below to see if you can improve the experience.

ZOOM is a viable option for dance instruction and used by many instructors.

Tips & Tricks

Sound Quality

For first time ZOOM'ers, sound quality is the chief complaint.  Most of these issues can be addressed with a few easy steps.

ORIGINAL SOUND

By default the host ZOOM client will try to suppress background noise.  This is to enhance the speakers voice and drown-out and incidental background noise such as construction or dogs barking. 

This works wonderful when you are holding a voice only meeting; however, not for DJ's or instructors as the music is suppressed by the filters. 

You as a host have the ability to choose when you want to suppress sound or not by enabling the "Original Sound" toggle button on their Zoom client.

Once enabled the host clicks the "Turn On Original Sound" option, once each session, and start playing music.
