To ensure accurate presentation scores, we require all first-time users to adjust sound recording settings before using PitchVantage. Follow the instructions carefully and you only need to complete this 1-min process once. 

 

First, connect a headset/earbud/AirPods with a microphone to your laptop.


Watch this video for the rest of instructions. The written article is also available to you below the video.



Click the Apple icon > Click System Preferences.



Click Sound  > Click Input.

  • If you are using a headset with jack(s), select External Microphone 
  • If you are using a USB or Bluetooth headset, select your own headset brand


After selecting a proper microphone, adjust the setting:

  • Set Input volume to the middle (50%)
  • Check "Use ambient noise reduction" (if visible)



Your adjustment is complete! 


Lastly, click the attachment below to listen to a 6-second audio and get a sense of what good quality recording sounds like. You are all set and ready to launch PitchVantage!
