    I got Pioneer 600 mixer, Sony Laptop using Audacity. Also have Nero.

    Setup from record out to mic input. I have set all the levels on my laptop to the lowest possible. Also on Audacity The levels I have set really low to avoid clipping.

    I still hit the red. What am I doing wrong.

    I have tried recording from the booth out which I can adjust so it doesnt clip, but then the sound is really bassy and not clear at all.

    If I have the AC Power into my laptop then its all over as it records so much distortion.

    If someone knows how to sort this out. Just wanna record a set and its a complete nightmare. :smash:

    Cheers

    Connect into your line in on your monitor. If you don't have one, buy an external USB sound card for 10 quid.
