Zoom in 192kbps stereo
Just received this announcement from my university’s IT person. I haven’t tried it yet.

…latest round of features and enhancements to Zoom’s Desktop Client and Web Portal… To access these features, we highly encourage you to update to our latest version of Zoom…

High Fidelity Audio Mode: This option in Advanced Audio enhances “Original Audio” mode, allowing for disabling echo cancellation & post-processing, while raising audio codec quality to 48Khz, 96Kbps mono/192kbps stereo for professional audio transmission in music education and performance applications. Professional audio interface, microphone, and headphones are required.

That's interesting - thanks. Its nowhere near the quality of audiomovers, but a good start.

BTW do you have any experience with trying to teach audio with MS Teams? This year has been a shocker for me on mac!

Re: Zoom in 192kbps stereo
Zoom has definitely some main areas to fix. It's been a year since the Zoom-Goldrush and still not available:

The ZoomAudioDevice is still limited to only 48kHz. No chance to share a 44.1kHz Pro Tools Session via Zoom unless you use other workarounds, like Loopback.
I show some of the limitations and workaround in my video:


Zoom recordings are still MONO, really??? Does the zoom team know hay many teachers have to record their classes (synchronous or asynchronous). Playing back the Zoom Session in mono makes Zoom pretty useless.

Yes, it is a nightmare, esp. on mac. Despite the apparent teams on mac fix of what they call Public Preview - without software like loopback I have not been able to make it work. We have public preview and it has not worked for me using either High Sierra or Big Sur.

I cannot afford loopback at the moment (I may end up asking for my institution to buy it) so I am using workarounds like: this https://sway.office.com/7jfO0NEKxDTPDYxr?ref=Link and fortunately we were back in our larger studios teaching (socially distanced of course) from March.

If anyone else has other experiences I would be interested to hear...
