Still wondering about the new Zoom audio settings...not liking them

I previously posted about the new audio settings that Zoom updated recently. The settings were supposed to giver a finer audio sound, and eliminate any feedback noise or echo issues. At this point, I'm not liking them, although it's possible I didn't go about testing them correctly.


Saturday night I made several test recordings with the new settings, using the "record" feature during my own Zoom meeting. Keep in mind, my meeting was just local to me, I didn't transmit to anyone. I hated the recordings using these features turned on. I went back to the original settings, but making sure I had "Turn on original sound" selected.


The settings I took off:

Automatically adjust microphone volume

Suppress background noise

Echo Cancellation


I kept on High fidelity music mode.


We will have to explore further - if anyone else would like to post their findings, they would be most welcome.
