I’m using XP and Audacity V2, trying to convert an LP to digital. The phono is going through a receiver, then to “line in” on my Sound Blaster sound card. I have done this may times in the past, but now I’m getting too much volume in, red line all the way, hugh distortion. I have tried using the input slide, and I have adjusted the line in volume of the Windows audio properties. The input volume does not respond in any way to any changes I have made.
This problem also occurred on the old Audacity version.
i have recently installed Finale 2012 (also have 2001 installed). They work OK and I haven’t found any connection between finale and line in volume. there is a lot I don’t know.
