Best Original Music Settings for Group Fitness?


With the new Zoom client settings for original sound for musicians feature, there are 3 off/on toggles:  1.) high-fidelity, 2.) echo cancellation and 3.) stereo audio.  Any suggestions for optimal experience for a group fitness experience?

Hi @BfloChrisBrown, welcome to the community! Here is an explanation of each option to best help you decide what you need to enable/disable, from the knowledge base article on Configuring audio for music and singing and Configuring professional audio settings for Zoom Meetings


When enabling original sound feature in the Zoom desktop client, you will also have greater control over:

  • High fidelity music mode to optimize Zoom audio for the highest quality.
  • Zoom's echo cancellation algorithms, which are enabled by default.
  • Stereo audio for a better listening experience, which is disabled by default.


Breaking each option down:

  • High-fidelity music mode: This disables echo cancellation & post-processing, while raising audio codec quality to 48Khz, 96Kbps mono/192kbps stereo. Professional audio interface, microphone, and headphones required.
  • Echo cancellation: Prevents the creation of echoes between mic and speakers. Disable only recommended when using headphones to isolate audio or when playing instruments.
  • Stereo audio: Encodes mic audio in stereo. Requires a stereo-capable microphone or audio interface.
