Higher Volume/ Lower Distortion
So I have a Yamaha EMX5014C mixer. I have it plugged into my computer to record into MixCraft6. I can record, but when all my levels are up, (the recording level on MixCraft is up, the volume is up on MixCraft, the volume is up on my computer speakers, the gain and compression are both all the way up on the mixer), I still have a very low and distorted recording. I am recording by plugging a 3.5 male-to-male from the headphone jack on the mixer (1/4 inch adapter) to the computer in/out jack. I have dealt with the same thing when plugging into an iMac and using GarageBand. With GarageBand I could record without distortion but it was an extremely low volume level. I need to figure out how to get more volume from the mixer somehow and I'm stumped. Ask me if I've been at all unclear about something.
