If you hear an echo during a Studio session or when you download a participant's separate track after recording, a participant's audio setup may be causing the echo. The troubleshooting information below can help minimize this echo during a recording.
Headphones plugged into a USB microphone
If you or your Guest's headphones are plugged into a USB microphone and the microphone's gain (audio sensitivity) is high, other participants' audio may get recorded through the mic and captured on the track.
To avoid this, plug the headphones directly into the computer/device rather than into the microphone.
Headphones with an in-line mic plugged into the AUX/headphone port
If you or a Guest is using a computer and has plugged headphones in, the computer may select the in-line microphone (in the headphone's cord) as the default microphone. However, this can cause an echo.
To avoid this, select the built-in microphone of your device, like the MacBook Pro Microphone (Built-in) in the image below. The first option on the list, Default – External Microphone (Built-in), is the microphone in the headphone's cord. If this isn't possible or the computer does not have a built-in microphone, reduce the microphone's sensitivity using the computer's settings.
Using an audio mixer
If you or a Guest is using an audio mixer, make sure to enable Mix-Minus to isolate the input audio signal from the output audio coming from the Studio. Read more about isolating tracks with an audio mixer.
