    I just got this today, and i tried recording my guitar amp with a SM-57 and the sound was way overloaded. So i turned down the mic signal with the card's built in digital mixer. well, it was still overloaded and clipping, so i figured some of the clipping was from the mixer's volume thing being turned up all the way. But the preamp is still clipping when i mic even just yell into it. now i don't know where to turn the preamps down. Its not in the cards control panel. Also, the xlr inputs are supposed to double as line inputs, and i don't know where to turn off the preamps to use them as line inputs. im guessing both of those things are in the same place, and i can't find them.

    there is a Jumper to set on the card between Mic-and Line on Cannel 1+2

    The position is in the manual.

    much fun

    Could you explain what a jumper is? i heard this somewhere else, but it didn't really sound like what i wanted.

    please have a look in your manual.

    maybe your "Jumper" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumper_(computing)) is set to
    micro level than the guitar would overdrive the input.

    you also can degree the input levels at the midiman driversoftware.

    hope i could help you

    The on-board preamps are pretty much shite. Thrown in so they could say that it has "mic preamps." Get a DMP3 like everyone else and enjoy.

    Im going to get the dmp3, but right now i don't have any money. I also want to know how to use the xlr inputs as line inputs.

    Well, I figured out a solution. im running my mic into an outboard eq and using the volume control to turn down the signal coming into the preamp. it seems to work alright....

    I'm an idiot. I got a response from the M-audio customer service people and they said the same jumper thing. They told me it was on page 9 or so in the manual (which is was). I must have skipped over that page because I thought it just said how to stick it in your computer. But the jumper thing is correct. Thanks for the help.
