mike recording level adjustment

hi how do you adjust the mike recording level?

There is a [u]recording volume slider[/u].

But, if you’re using a USB mic or a USB interface you generally can’t adjust the recording level on the “digital side” while recording. Some USB mics and USB interfaces have analog recording level knobs on the “analog side” of the analog-to-digital converter.

Of course, you can Amplify after recording. But, if the signal is “too hot” and you’re clipping (distorting) the analog-to-digital converter then digital volume adjustment won’t remove the distortion.
