    Hi guys, Just wondering if someone can help me out! I'm trying to record mixes in Audacity or Sony Sound Forge. When I play the recording back it's so distorted it's nasty. It also clips in the red when recording. I don't want to go fiddle with settings because I don't know what I'm doing. I'm so crap with computers it's unreal. I've read few threads on here but didn't really anser my question. If someone can help me out that be great. Many thanks :)

    Is the sound distorted as you're playing it? If not you should turn down the input volume (the microphone bar at the top).


    There are a couple of good youtube tutorials on this.
