Turn off hold music while host is waiting for participants to join RC conference call

We need to be able to turn off the hold music once the host opens the call and is waiting on participants to join.  This need became apparent when we tried using RingCentral conferencing for our Board meetings.  The in person meeting gets started at the meeting start time, whether any participants have called into the conference line or not.  However, the hold music playing disrupts the in person meeting.  Currently the only option is to have RC Support turn off ALL conferencing sounds, including the notification of participants joining/leaving, notification of the call being recorded, etc.  As a workaround, we are having a meeting participant call into the conference bridge from their desk or cell phone and put it on mute for the duration of the meeting so the hold music isn't playing.  

Note: I'd previously found this post which seemed to be a solution for this; however, it was then noted that this functionality does not currently exist.
