Here is how to use Instamic as an external wireless microphone on macOS using the Hands-Free Profile Mode (16kHz).


If you want to take advantage of our 48kHz high-quality streaming codec, please follow this procedure.



Let's start


1. Launch the Instamic Remote application and connect to your Instamic.


2. Go to Settings and make sure to Disable the Auto-Gain and Enable the Hands-Free Profile Mode on Settings.




3. Check your Instamic is in Hands-Free Profile Mode on the Connect Page.




4. Enable the audio streaming pressing the O button on the unit or Enable Streaming from our app.



5. Turn the Bluetooth On on your macOS computer and connect to Instamic. 




6. Select Instamic as your input audio source

7. Select Internal Speakers or Headphones as your output audio source

8. Instamic is your default macOS input source that you can use on any conference call, audio, speech-to-text applications, etc.



IMPORTANT NOTE Most of Apple's computers don't support the Wide Speech Band (WBS) feature that supports 16kHz audio. It is very dependent on the Bluetooth module mounted on your machine.

Happy streaming,
