adjusting audio while recording

Hi, when I record an album via USB to my PC (windows 10), I can record BUT, to get a good recording level for playback on Itunes, etc., I have to increase the volume on my PC VERY high to achieve this, which comes across my speakers quite loud. Is there a way to record at a level I need but not have the music play through my PC speakers so loud? Sorry for this basic question but any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you. I have version 3.1.3.
