Tune Your Room
Take a look at these Pro Tips to get the best sounding Gig Room possible
We're so excited that you've joined us! We'll help you Tune your Room!
Now that you're here, we want to help you get the most out of your Gig Room experience. In the "real world" you would arrange your studio or music room in the best way so you could enjoy making music. You would position the chairs and music stands so you could see the other musicians. You would make sure there was adequate lighting. You would make sure that outside noise was eliminated or kept to a minimum. You'll want to "tune your Gig Room" in much the same way.
Here are our Pro Tips that will help you get the most out of Gig Room.
- Plug into a wired internet connection when possible.
- Ask others in your home, or on your network, to please not use the internet during your Gig Room session. That Netflix download can limit your internet speed. It’s just an hour (in most cases). It’s OK to be stingy once in a while!
- Close all other software applications and only keep open the browser you are using for Gig Room. Chrome, Firefox and Safari work best, so use one of those browsers.
- Have only one tab open in your browser.
- Use wired headphones. Bluetooth headphones add latency. Headphones help you hear the other musicians in the Gig Room and help to eliminate feedback and noise cancellation.
- Turn off the ambient noise reduction feature in your System Preferences/Sound window as well as any feedback elimination application you might have on.
- If connecting through Wi-Fi, try to be as close to the router as possible. Using Wi-Fi in a different room, or on a different level of a home or building, will slow your internet speed.
- Turn off any feedback elimination application you might have on.
- Worst case, turn off your video and go “audio only”. It’s the music that really matters to us, anyway!
