iMultimix8 USB question

I recently purchased an Alesis iMultimixer 8 USB to record an internet radio show. I tried recording to Audacity but the sound level isnt good until i turn up the “gain” on the Audacity playback. Also, I want to use music and sound fx on my show, some of which is in iTunes. Whats the best way to import the sound files i wanna use into Audacity? Tried drag n drop and didnt work.

Purchased iTunes music may have FairPlay copy protection. Create a playlist and burn the playlist to a CD. Then change the iTunes preferences to WAV and import the CD.

What version of audacity are you using? 1.3.12 is recommended in most cases.

To import audio tracks into audacity go to File menu → Import → Audio…
