I'm having a problem recording the output from my CD player through the line in of my soundcard, the Midiman Audiophile (Window's XP).

The problem is distortion. I can't seem to find a way to attenuate the line level input in soundforge and this is causing clipping.

I'm beginning to wonder if this can be removed since during normal playback (through PC) I also get audible clipping, even when the line in is attenuated using Midiman's control panel. I suspect the Midiman doesn't like the output levels of my CD player?

I'm quite sure the input signal itself isn't a problem since playback direct through my amplifier reveals no clipping.

Any ideas?

If it is reduced, but is still clipped


It is definitely still clipped, it's quite audible. Turning down H/W in 1/2 slider on the control panel reduces the playback volume but doesn't affect the soundforge input volume.

QUOTE
but the wav directly ripped from the CD is not


The ripped wav is not clipped, at least it's not audible although there are other problems with it. The reason I'm trying to rip the audio in this manner is since it's copy protected, I've posted about it here.

Here are two samples:

sample-ana.flac
sample-rip.flac

Interestingly I've tried another couple of CDs and they playback fine, although they may not of been good tests since the volume wasn't that high on them. I'll try and see if I can find some other's that do clip.

If this is your problem, see if you have a variable output on the CD player, that can play quieter than the fixed one (monitored by the phone output level). If not, use the headphone output, if it has a level control.


Yeah, this was my next plan of action. Was hoping I didn't have to do that though.
