I apologize in advance if this has been posted many times. I did a couple searches and didn't find a thread. I'm just trying to record our practices for learning sake. A couple audience mics in the middle of the room into a preamp, out to a 1/8" stereo plug. From there we're trying to go in to the mic input (no line in). I can't figure out how to adjust the input level in Vista. At least with win2k I could pull the fader down. As a side bar, I'm not entirely sure it wasn't the built in mic on the laptop that did the recording and not the mics. I can't find anything so select input source, level, anything. I'd rather not have to drag my A/D to every jam. sorry for the grammar, been a long day.
