Stereo recording PLEASE!


Please, please, please allow stereo recording of meetings. PLEASE! I'm sure Zoom is aware that at least tens, if not hundreds of thousands of musicians use Zoom; stereo sound for music is crucial. This is 2022 ... we can send robots to Mars, why can't we record Zoom meetings in stereo? Thanks.



I cannot agree more! Voice sounds like an aluminum tin!

Hi @DoctoraMaru @frednow ! I just realized you didn't receive a reply to your post. Please check out the following knowledge base article and let me know if it helps 🙂 Enabling stereo audio . 

I think this might be what you both are looking for.

Thanks for your reply, Carla. However, I don’t think you understand the request: stereo sound when recording a Zoom meeting.


 From the article you linked to:


Recordings and the Zoom mobile app don't support stereo audio (audio will be mono).”


I already know how to enable stereo sound in the meeting; I want to be able to record stereo sound as well. 

In another post i have read that it is not allowed in Zoom to record stereo. You can listen stereo but not to record.  Anyway you are lucky , i cannot ever make my music listened in stereo for my students: it is in mono and of low quality

Enrico, in order to play music in stereo for your students, choose:

Share Screen > Advanced > Computer Audio and then click the tiny downward-pointing caret to the right where you'll find a choice of Mono or Stereo (High-fidelity)

Then click Share in bottom right corner.

To get the audio recording in stereo I use a separate app (Audacity) to record the audio, selecting Speakers (loopback) as the  Recording Device.  This recording is stereo, unlike the Zoom recording which is still mono.
