If you are not wearing headphones, Echo Cancellation limits how much other participants' audio output is picked up by your microphone and transmitted back into the Studio. If so, you may hear this echo during the Studio session and it is saved on your recorded track. The signal can cause 'audio bleed,' feedback noise, or echoes on the recorded track. Follow the steps below to turn individual Echo Cancellation on or off.
Recordings sound best when all participants are wearing headphones. If you are not wearing headphones, turn on individual Echo Cancellation. Hosts and Producers can also toggle other participants' Echo Cancellation.
Each participant's Echo Cancellation is usually already set up in the Green Room. Before they enter the Studio, they indicate whether they are wearing headphones. You usually won't need to change it afterward in the Studio.
Step by step:
Using your computer, join a Riverside Studio.
In the bottom left corner, click Settings.
In the Audio & Video section, scroll to Echo Cancellation.
Click the toggle to turn your own Echo Cancellation on or off.
If they join the Studio on a computer, Hosts and Producers can also use the Studio's sidebar to turn individual Echo Cancellation on/off.
