I have having some difficulty in transferring vinyl from my Audio Technica LP120 USB Turntable in that the inout levels from the turntable are pushing levels into the ‘Red’, exceeding the maximum recommended of -6db.
Looking at tutorials etc it would appear that Apple/MAC does not allow you to change the input level and when i try to move the slider on the ‘mic’ inout it cannot be changed, (is firmly to the right at maximum).
I have looked at both the standard sound settings on the MAC and the advanced MIDI controller set up function and cannot seem to find a way to change this.
The result at present is that recordings in a lot of cases are distorted because the input is too loud. The genre is very centred on low, (bass) frequencies and as such it doesn’t help lol.
Is there anyway i can get around this and get the settings i need to correct the recordings or is it a case with MAC that i need to make the recording as it is and then make changes through Audacity afterwards?
Is there anyway i can limit the monitor to not exceed -6db
If the latter us the case any advice or help on what to do would be very much and greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your help folks and if you need any further info, happy to provide.
Cheers and a Happy New Year to you all
