Imput sound during record

When I’m transferring an old cassette recording to my PC using a SUPER USB CASSETTE CAPTURE device, how can I control the input sound?

The volume? With USB You can’t control the recording volume.

You can run the Amplify effect after recording.

…If you want to adjust the recording level, the analog level has be adjusted before it’s digitized because it’s the analog-to-digital converter (inside the cassette player) that will clip (distort) when the signal is too high. The cassette player has no adjustment for that.

Or, if you have a desktop/tower computer with a regular soundcard, you can connect the headphone-output on the cassette player to line-in (blue) on the soundcard. Of course the volume control works on the headphone output. (The microphone input on a laptop won’t work properly.)
