Connection Guidelines

The biggest challenge in learning remotely is proper audio and video conferencing. Video conferencing apps have no problem sending video back and forth, but audio is limited just to one device, whereas we would need two - one for the microphone and the second one for the DAW. Due to some technical limitations, passing the microphone signal through DAW will not always work as intended, therefore we highly recommend installing certain apps to aid that.

These apps integrate into the system by creating virtual inputs and outputs that allow us to mix the signal from the mic and the DAW together and them pass the resulting signal to the video conferencing software.

You can find detailed instructions here (For Windows and Mac).

If you encounter any difficulties installing or configuring these apps, please contact your tutor, they will be glad to help!


NB: These apps are not required if you have an audio interface with loopback function such as Steinberg UR22mkII (available in store).
