Since I don't have your setup, I can't point to where this setting may be.
I have connected my PC to my DJ Mixer in a view to record my mixes straight onto my computer for cd burning.
I have an RCA to 1/8" y cable which is connected to the Out on the mixer and plugged into the Microphone socket of the sound card. I have Sound Forge 8 software on my pc which I use to record the music playing through the mixer. The problem I have is that when I stop recording the stream and listen to the outcome the volumes vary.
For example. I have recorded a dance tune with vocals in it. At the start of the track before the vocals kick in the volume of the recording goes up and down every 5 seconds or so but as soon as the vocals kick in the volume stays steady and the recording sounds good. Then once the vocals stop, the volume starts going up and down again on the instrumental part.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be. Do I need a better sound card with a proper Line In port to record through or am I doing something wrong?
I've tried other recording software and the same happens so I know it's not that....
