For better audio quality in online lessons, we recommend the following requirements: use a computer (PC or Mac) with updated operating system, with at least 8 GB of Ram and i5 processor or higher.
Use an updated browser (Chrome is recommended) and close the other browser windows and all other applications.
Use a headset and external microphone. We recommend USB microphones, such as Apogee Mic Plus or Mic96, Rode NT-USB or NT-USB Mini, Blue Yeti.
Have an internet connection (possibly fiber) with at least 30 Mbits in download and 15 Mbits in upload. It is recommended to connect your computer via Ethernet cable, if possible, as the WiFi connection may be less stable.
Adjust the microphone level manually, making sure that the sound is not distorted in the loudest part.
