I have just connected an Audio Buddy pre-amp to the line-in of my Creative Audigy 2 sound card in order to record from a dynamic mic and guitar. I hear a great sound from my speakers simultaneous with my recording (Is this always-on monitoring normal?), but the recording level into Sonar 4 is extemely low, and it sounds like there is some kind of line noise (similar to an impedance mismatch). When I use a USB connected desk mic for other purposes, such as VOIP and recording in other applications, it works fine. Any ideas for a fix? Thanks much.
