Subject: RE: Problem - line in clipping when recording
From: Meirion Williams [e-knowledge] (meirion_at_e-knowledge.net)
Date: 2003-05-19


Thanks for everyone's suggestions here, I'm going to get an inline headphone
volume control from Maplin.co.uk, it's only about ?2.99 so if it doesn't
work - no big loss.

Although, getting back to the case of the rockbox and line level recording -
is there any way the rockbox software can get the recording gain any lower
than -3db.. is this a hardware limitation or something?

Radio Shack sells an attenuation cable just for this application. It has a
built-in 20 db pad. Runs less than $10.
