Trigger based on sound of the microphone(s).

This guide teaches you how the microphone(s) gets triggered, based on sound. In addition to this, you will learn how multiple camera positions and other triggers could get activated.


6 Steps to set up a proper connection with your microphones.

{info} Before you start, make sure there are TriggerItems available. In this way, you are able to trigger a microphone and use a created Visual as a trigger for your microphone.
  1. Connect all your microphone(s) to your VisualRadioAssist Server Computer that you want to trigger on a line level (+0db). You should possibly purchase a (cheap) external USB sound card.
  1. Are all microphone channels recognized correctly by Windows? Check it via Windows -> Sound settings.
  1. Add a new Item via the VisualRadioAssist Server -> Settings -> MICAssist.
  1. Select the sound card and the channel that is connected to the microphone (L / R / Stereo).
  1. Select the Trigger and the correct threshold. We recommend to directly align this threshold with your sound processing and input level.
  1. Adjust the aggressivity of the MICAssist in Settings -> MICAssist -> Options. Sensity determines how fast VRA should respond on sound. Talktime determines the time someone is not required to talk in the microphone.
