The Audio Effects tab located within “Broadcast Your Performance”, provides the artist with studio-quality effects without the need to install or set up any additional programs. With just a microphone or instrument plugged into your computer or interface, you can add dynamic effects like compression or time-based effects like reverb and delay. Additionally, you have the ability to manipulate frequencies with EQ and adjust sound placement with panning.
To access and use in-browser effects, start your broadcast at https://volume.com/b/ . The "Audio Effects" tab will appear underneath your broadcast after you have started broadcasting.
