I installed 3.3.0 and I have no longer any control of recording level slider. It does not move at all. I was using 3.2.0 and had that control and was using 70%. I am not aware of any changes to DEVICES etc. in Auadacity or Windows(10). I tried going back to earlier version and now the problem is in ANY version. I need input control because I am inputting from analog turntable through a standalone pre-amp with no output control.
Plugged-into what? Usually you can control the recording level on the line-input on a regular soundcard in a desktop/tower computer.
But most USB devices cannot be controlled from the computer.
Is the level too low or too high? Too low is usually OK and you can use the Amplify effect after recording, unless it’s way to low.
If the signal is too hot and you’re clipping the analog-to-digital converter, you can’t fix the distortion by reducing the digital level later. You need to control the **analog **level before it’s digitized.
