The real trick to great audio is living in remote solitude, miles from another living creature. But we don't all have that luxury! In the absence of upending your life and moving to the quiet countryside, you might be wondering how to improve Zoom audio quality.
Well for those of us with any kind of background noise to get rid of, Krisp is the next best thing to a zen-like rustic abode. Krisp is an app for macOS and Windows that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with local audio-processing to strip out unwanted background noises like babies crying, dogs barking, traffic, construction, background chatter and more.
Not only does Krisp make your audio sound better by removing the background sounds from around you, but it also allows you to apply the same filter to other people's audio. This is particularly useful if you're having a conversation with someone who is in a loud environment or if the person on the other end of the line is a particularly loud typer.
Krisp is available for free with 120 minutes of noise cancellation per week and it is so good that I wish I had known about this app a few weeks ago because I would have added it to my video about the best free productivity apps for Mac.
If Krisp sounds like something you'd find useful, you can get a free 1-month trial of unlimited minutes by clicking here.
The free plan might work for the occasional video call, but for those among us who need more than two hours of noise cancellation a week, they offer unlimited minutes for $5 per month.
Check out the video below that shows you how to get set up on Krisp and how to select it as the microphone for Zoom. If you like this content and want to see more of it, subscribe to my channel on YouTube.
