Dear Client. We wish you to have the very best remote session experience!
The remote sessions can be very nice, simple, and effective or a total disaster, resulting in additional time spend to get it done, not getting it done as expected, or even failing in the worst-case scenario. Because of the compromised session, the product can suffer, and might not reach its potential and meet your expectations. As your time is precious, we would like to provide a simple guide for a proper way to approach, making the remote session a nice experience for you and other participants.
Always use a headset...never a laptop’s built-in microphone and speakers.
Noise is very disturbing for voice talent and other participants. It makes communication very hard and inefficient. There are numerous reasons why we strongly advise against using built-in laptops or screen microphones and speakers.
• Devices have built-in microphones and speakers are very close to each other, therefore a sound loop is always present. That means other remote session participants will hear back themselves with a delay by an audio signal going from your speaker to your microphone. Noise reduction algorithms are used to cancel the loop, but the results can be very bad.
• We want to hear you alone, not an entire office, your air conditioning, and maybe rain pouring on your roof window.
Please grab a $5 USB headset and let it rock!
Mute your microphone when you are not speaking
Most of the remote recording/conference platforms apply the same principle. When you mute your microphone within the app, you can temporarily unmute it by holding a space button. We suggest using this method.
