Switch off audio suppression entirely


Honestly I'm not sure if this is the right location to post this, but I couldn't find a more suiting one. Anyway...


I'm trying to configure the Zoom app for Linux 32bit on a Raspberry Pi 400 with Raspberry Pi OS. As it's and ARM computer, I need to install it through an emulator, Box86. Problem is, everything seems to work so far except for the microphone which works so poorly it's unusable.
Looking for a solution, I stumbled upon this bug report ( which blames the introduction of background noise suppression for the poor performance on the machine.

So, I've also read somewhere that supporting a niche product such as the RPi is understandably not a priority for the Zoom developers, I thought to suggest them to let users disable noise reduction altogether (adding "None" among "Auto", "Low", Medium" and "High") to fallback to the app's previous behaviour as a workaround while Box86 figures out how to emulate the app better.  Could this be a good compromise?
