I am having trouble with the Recording Control when I try to use the Set Volume button on some LPs: I cannot set the volume low enough. I use the Line In signal to record from. The Volume slider is one tick from its lowest position, but I am still overloading the Record Level when I record.
The Recording Control is the sndvol32.exe that came with my Windows XP Home edition; the version is 5.1.2600.0. I am using Wave Corrector 3.1r1. I have a Realtek AC97 Audio card. The driver version is 126.96.36.19910, which is the most current version I can find. I realize the Volume slider is from the Recording Control, not from Wave Corrector. Is there a way to tell Wave Corrector to use a lower volume?
FYI, I corresponded with Derek Higgens last year. He kindly suggested I might "record from 'stereo mix' output of the soundcard mixer, rather than recording directly from the line-in. This has the advantage that you can turn down the volume using the playback 'line-in' control and then reduce it further using the recording volume control. Although this will probably work, it will also degrade the quality somewhat and it would be better if you could somehow reduce the signal level going into the soundcard." I don't know how to reduce the signal as it is just coming from my preamp.
