can anyone help. i am trying to use my ion turntable to transfer vinyl to the computer using audacity software but i cant turn the audio up sufficiently to use it in fact i cant adjust it at all. when i attach to an external source with my hifi turntable using the stereo cables from the ion i can use the hifi volume to do this but there is no volume control on the ion. how can i do it please.
Im assuming the ion is pligged in through a USB socket. I have used USB sound cards with XP - don't know about Vista - and they don't usually have a volume control. once you've recorded, select all the music (ctrl+A) and use effects, normalise.
thanks for the replies to this . i have selected usb input as audio and do have software playthrough selected but when it plays on audacity there is too little volume to show any activity and i cant increase it at all any further help for this would be appreciated. i am using vista. when i plug to an external source there is no problem but iw ant to use the ion turntable for lps not connect that to another source
cribbed this from the Audacity site which might help
"The ION USB turntables have a gain control to manage the output level of the signal. I would guess that ION are using very similar electronics and thet therefore you could possibly have a gain control on the tape deck. On the TT it is "hidden" in an awkward place - have a good look at your deck and read the manual. (Update: I just had a look on ION's t'interweb site - and looks like you have a big control on the front labelled "Record Level" - looks like the gain control to me.)"
