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?

I don't know why your phono stage would be putting out a high enough level signal to cause problems (mine doesn't)

Because there has been a volume race between DJ cartridge manufacturers, that now output louder than a standard hi fi cartridge. Also, if you play a 45 RPM maxi, the output is noticeably louder than with a 33 RPM record (more space to modulate the groove ?), not to mention the volume race on records themselves, than are not digitally limited.

Ideally, Windows mixer if set to zero (0), should have NO signal, irrespective of any frontend load. If not, then an adjustment to set the threshold should be made available so we could easily cope up with component changes. Since no known software can do it, our old method works!

If there was no message (thread) of this nature in this forum, I would ne completely in the dark.

My original turntable was a Technics, and I recently acquired (from a Thrift Shop), this Thorens high End Turntable with an Ortofon cartridge. I'm not using a DJ cartrige, but this Ortofon sells for about $150. I don't have an external pre-amp or a dedicated mixer, but instead I just use the pre-amp of my stereo receiver. My recordings with this new Turntable is exceptionallt brilliant... OH, I tell ya... there is a marked difference in the quLity of the sound!! My old David Rose, Percy Faith, Mantovani, beautiful instrumentals LP records are so nice to listen to...

Thank you all, for your input... It's so interesting to read messages from you Guy's. It's eduacational, informative and refreshing!!!
