I recently installed Windows 7 on my computer. All of the sounds from the computer work fine but when I try to play what's coming through the line in I get crackling distortion. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Sure you're not putting it in via the MIC input. Also check line level controls in Audio and explore the submenus -- I've done this myself and wondered why the levels were so low/high when inputting audio.
I know I've got it in the right input. I used this same setup before I installed Windows 7 and everything worked perfectly. I've already tried changing the sound levels in the mixer and looked through the submenus but I didn't find anything that seemed to help. Do you have any specific suggestions for what to look for in the submenus?
