Just started using a Samson C01 condenser XLR microphone + Audient Evo 4 audio interface for sound on my Zoom calls. Headphones aren't very comfortable for me, so I use speakers to listen to the audio.
Realized that the C01 was picking up the sound coming from the computer speakers (when others were speaking) & causing an echo. Enabling Zoom's auto noise cancelling seemed to deal with the issue acceptably, but I'd prefer to do it without Zoom's auto-anything features.
Is there a solution to this? Using speakers for hearing the audio is non-negotiable.
Can I do a mix minus of the speaker sound (if I'm even using the correct terminology) using Evo 4?
Total noob here.
Will using a dynamic mic (e.g., the Zoom ZDM-1) help with this issue? I'm thinking of the ZDM-1 primarily because it is cheap yet well-reviewed.
How much difference would cardioid vs. hyper/super cardioid (C01 & ZDM-1 both are not cardioid) polar pattern make?
Will adding a noise gate solve this issue?
