Audio Functions as a Presenter

As a presenter in Greenroom, you have the ability to control your own microphone. In this article, we'll show you how to select your microphone and speaker source, how to mute yourself, and provide some additional things to know about the audio functions as a Greenroom Presenter

Selecting Microphone and Speaker Source

By navigating to the profile Avatar > Video Settings, you can select which microphone to use (i.e. computer’s internal mic or external USB mic) as well as  the speaker source (i.e. computer’s speakers or headphones).  


How to Mute Yourself

Within the Greenroom, you have the ability to mute yourself whenever you want.

To do so, you'll use the mic icon (just above the camera icon) that you'll see on your thumbnail within the Presenter tab. The Producer within your Greenroom will have the ability to mute and unmute you as well.


Audio FYIs

Here are a couple additional things to know about the audio functions as a Greenroom Presenter.

  • When your Greenroom event is live, all audio that’s spoken within the Greenroom will be live on your event page (unless the Producer has turned on Backstage & Producer Comms). This includes someone that might not be on the canvas but still has their mic unmuted. This means that if the Producer or a Presenter is speaking when unmuted, even if they’re not live in the canvas, their audio will come through on the live stream.
  • If you’re a Presenter that’s getting ready to go live with the Producer's cues, you can stay muted; when the Producer brings you into the Greenroom canvas, you will be unmuted automatically. This eliminates the need for a Presenter to worry about unmuting themselves before they go live.
  • When a Presenter is done speaking and they’re brought out of the canvas of the Greenroom, their microphone will still be unmuted. This means that they will either need to mute themselves or have the Producer mute them, in order to better control the audio sources within Greenroom.
