Zoom & self isolating choirs

Postby hooty2 » Tue Mar 31, 2020 12:02 pm

Hi...i was asked a question that i can't answer. I'm looking into it, and this is part of that:).
A community choir of up to 30/40 members, wants to use the Zoom meeting app to keep practicing. I reckon a few will have usb mics) interfaces, a few may use Android or Apple phones, mist will use built in laptop mic and headphones/speakers.
How best to organise this and what are the pitfalls.
All help appreciated

Latency is the main pitfall, these threads discuss various means of 'jamming/rehearsing' online :-
