Volume input control

Audacity 2.2.2
Windows 10 Home

I am trying to record LP’s to transfer to CD’s. I am so far unable to adjust the input volume level. The slider does not change anything.

Thank you for your time.

USB audio devices do not generally have software recording level adjustment, so when using a USB audio device, Audacity’s input volume level control will not work.

Some do

My old ION TT-USB had a gain control - albeit in a very awkward place underneath the turntable at the back.

And me Edirol UA-1EX (now discontinued) has a gain control
