The default settings on the rhythm mic are far too low. It only picks up music at nightclub levels. Please provide a way to adjust this to increase sensitivity (or decrease it if I hold a rave at my house).

Thanks.

I agree with this entirely. My Lights and Rhythm are right next to my desk and when I am playing music the sound will hardly pick up.

Would like to see this as well

I agree. The app shows what the microphone is seeing but there is no way to increase or decrease the sensitivity.

This was the only downside I experienced with the product. I fixed this issue ~75% by placing aluminum foil behind/around the rhythm plug-in.

Do you have the aluminum foil sticking out around the edges, or even with the plug-in? I'm trying to picture what you have done so that I can try it on mine. Thanks!

Even with the plug-in seems to work best (so pretty much flat against the wall). My foil does extend down past the plug-in so as to be visible, as this improves the mic sensitivity (but not the prettiest sight). Lights work amazingly now though

Thanks for the information. I will have to give it a try when I get the chance.

As above, unless I have the music at unreasonable levels (for a flat), then the rhythm plug doesn't set the lights flashing…… And I don't fancy half a roll of bacofoil hanging down my wall!!

LOL I do share in your sentiment.

Does anyone know if the Canvas product has better mic sensitivity? I believe the mic is built in rather than an attachment. However, I chose the aurora/light panels due to the size and feel of the shape (and lack of the pattern/texture on each Canvas square that cannot be removed)

I have mine on the same wall where I have speakers near so I ends up not picking up the sound that goes outward. I wonder if I put em on the opposite wall if it would be any better.

At this point I'm looking at making an extension cable for the rhythm module so I can place it beside the speaker. Really sucks there is no option to adjust yet.

I received a light panel set for Christmas (Rhythm edition) and when we set it on the table in the kitchen testing it out the mic was so sensitive it was picking up people talking, so perhaps you just need an updated mic?

I agree with Space Walker, the sensitivity is too high if anything! I’ve been searching for how to reduce it. Panels and rhythm received in Dec 2018.
