    I use virtual DJ's "RIP VINYL" tool. Havent used virtual dj in years, but i use this tool ALL the time. Just sick my booth out into my microphone in, open it up, and it shows me a waveform, can turn down the gain, choose quality, and its all dead simple too.

    Turn the recording level down in Audacity. Always works fine for me...

    no other program will help u
    the reason it sounds distorted in audacity is the same reason it will sound distorted in any other program
    don't mean to sound rude but learn to record properly
    1 sort ur levels out on ur mixer, if ur in the red - ur doing it wrong
    2 sort ur levels out in audacity see pic

    too much, can u see how some/most of the waveform doesn't fit within the window, thats why it sounds shit

    this is much better

    hope that helps
