Zoom Settings for Mac & Windows


For Mac & Windows:

  1. Join your Zoom lesson 
  2. Click the arrow next to the Mute button
  3. Click Audio Settings
  4. Mark the settings as follows:
  5. Automatically adjust microphone volume – De-select
  6. Volume level – Medium-high
  7. Original sound for musicians – Select
  8. High fidelity music mode – Select
  9. Echo Cancellation – Select


*Selecting the “Original sound for musicians” option in the audio settings panel will give you the ability to enable it after you have joined the Zoom lesson, but it still defaults to being switched off. Switch it on, and you’re good to go! It’s good to keep an eye on it from time to time in case it gets switched off by itself!

Quick note about Original sound for Musicians

If you have a fan or some kind of continuous source of noise in the room, it’s good to check with other meeting participants how your audio is coming out, as the noise can be a little distracting or hindering to the clarity of your sound output. In case it is, you might want to consider switching from “Original sound for musicians” to “Zoom optimized audio” on the audio settings, and then setting the “Background noise suppression” parameter to Low or Medium.

Note for Windows users

Windows 11 has an additional audio setting that precedes Zoom’s audio settings and it’s worth taking a look at.
It’s located in Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound Settings -> (your input device) -> Advanced.
It’s called Signal Enhancements, and disabling this setting will allow the audio of your microphone to get to Zoom with less processing and potentially deliver improved sound for music lessons.
