I set one up following this guide on a VPS for chatting with friends. It’s encrypted and makes a really nice option for a private chat solution.

Mumble is nice indeed. Not so easy to configure on the desktop, but for Android there is the new and easy Mumla https://fossdroid.com/a/mumla.html

I found the Linux client just worked for me. I just added my server and that was it.

Do you mean you skipped the audio settings wizard part ? I’ve always found that kind of cumbersome with the Mumble desktop client. Then there’s also echo and feedback issues which can occur. Luckily Mumble provides three different ways to talk. Push to talk, continuous and a third one.

Yeah, that’s my one gripe with Mumble, not the greatest audio experience, especially coming from Discord. But I’ve accepted that as the price of freedom. lol

I wonder what we need to do in order to up the audio quality.

mumble from my experience provides the better audio quality. The problem is that bad hardware is more prominent since it doesn’t use a bunch of filters like discord. If you’re Hardware is good quality, discord will sound worse from what I experienced

Yeah, I didn’t do any additional config for the audio. The defaults seemed to work alright for my setup. I did notice it has some toggles for noise cancellation, etc. And yeah different options are kinda neat, I set mine to just use continuous. I’m using a headset with mine btw, so there isn’t much of an issue with feedback noise.
