Auto Best NC Low Power Usage

What is this?
This mode automatically gives you the best noise cancellation, voice quality, and balanced CPU/RAM usage whenever possible. The settings are adjusted accordingly based on the quality of your microphone and the current computer load. The accent here is on the noise cancellation though. In case there is a high usage of your CPU/RAM at some point, you might have a small decrease in the voice quality, but the app will always try to keep the noise cancellation on top. 

When to use?
Select this mode if you use Krisp for communication purposes.

 

Versions 2.0.0 and above

To select the desired mode for the upcoming calls:

  1. Go to Krisp Settings >>> Audio.
  2. Click on the Performance mode dropdown list.
  3. Select the mode.

Auto Best NC CPU Optimized
What is this?
This mode automatically gives you the best Noise Cancellation and balanced CPU/RAM usage whenever possible. The settings are adjusted accordingly based on the current computer load. In case there is a high usage of your CPU/RAM at some point, you might have a small decrease in the Noise Cancellation quality. 

 

CPU overload warning

No matter the selected option, if your system performance is not enough to process audio well at some point, Krisp warns you about that through the Krisp app or system notification.

If you are on Best Noise Cancellation mode, you can switch to Auto mode so the load will be successfully optimized.

Once your computer's performance stabilizes, the warnings will be gone.
