Adjust sound recording settings for Mac users

Modified on Sun, 19 Jun 2022 at 11:26 AM

We recommend our first-time users to adjust sound recording settings before using PitchVantage. Follow the instructions below 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!
