Setting Up Your Zoom for a Virtual Sound Bath: Step by Step Guide

Hosting a sound bath on Zoom involves a few technical considerations to ensure optimal audio quality. Here's a detailed guide:

1. Schedule the Zoom Session:

  • Log in to your Zoom account.
  • Click on "Schedule a New Meeting" and fill in the necessary details.

2. Enable Essential Settings:

  • Navigate to "Settings" in the Zoom portal.
  • Under the "Audio" tab, check the option for "Advanced Audio Settings."
  • Here, enable "Original Sound" to maintain the highest audio quality. This prevents Zoom from applying its noise reduction algorithms, preserving the richness of your sound bath.

3. Microphone Considerations:

  • Invest in a high-quality external microphone for superior sound reproduction. USB condenser microphones are often recommended for their clarity.
  • Connect the microphone to your computer before starting the Zoom session.

4. Testing Audio:

  • Join a test meeting to check your microphone settings.
  • Click on the small arrow next to the microphone icon in the meeting controls.
  • Select your external microphone from the list

 5. Camera and Lighting:

  • Ensure your camera is positioned to capture your setup, including the alchemy crystal bowls.
  • Optimize lighting to create a serene ambiance. Natural light or soft artificial light works best.

6. Internet Connection:

  • Use a stable internet connection. If possible, connect to the internet via an ethernet cable for a more reliable experience.

7. Virtual Background:

  • Consider using a virtual background or enhancing your real background with soothing elements related to your sound bath theme.

8. Additional Sound Equipment:

  • If you have multiple crystal bowls, consider using an audio interface to connect them to your computer for better control over the sound.

9. Headphones for Guidance:

  • Wear headphones to hear how the sound is being transmitted to participants. This helps you adjust as needed during the session.

10. Controlling Participant Audio:

  • Ask participants to mute their microphones during the sound bath to minimize background noise.
  • Encourage them to use quality headphones for an immersive experience.

11. Switching on Original Sound during the Virtual Sound Bath Session:

  • Once the session starts, click on the small arrow next to the microphone icon.
  • Select "Audio Settings."
  • In the Audio Settings window, click on "Advanced."
  • Check the box that says "Show in-meeting option to 'Enable Original Sound' from microphone."
  • During the session, you can click on "Enable Original Sound" from the meeting controls to activate it.

By following these technical steps, you'll optimize your Zoom session for a top-notch sound bath experience, ensuring participants can fully immerse themselves in the healing vibrations.
