Audacity and lack of volume

  xquest 12:42 31 Jul 2005

I used the freeware Audacity program to slow down a choral piece recorded on a CD (whilst maintaining the correct pitch). The result was then transferred to a cassette and then to a mini-disk and used to assist in choir rehearsals. However when the mini-disk was played through the church PA system the volume was half the expected level. If the church volume control was increased the sound level increased but above a certain position on the volume control the volume started to reduce. Any ideas why this might happen ? Is it a function of the digital processing involved in slowing down the original recording ? Is the only solution to record acoustically at some stage in the transfer process (ie. speaker to microphone) ?
