Actually I found three things...
1)Turn the app volume UP
2)input volume to 0.2
Here's the one that confuses me:
3)OUTPUT volume down to 0.1
For some odd reason BOTH volume controls increase audio line in
and lastly the audio files I wanted most and tried FIRST were
the 32 Leaves tracks and those seem to have some sort of bizarre protection... you can play them and record them but when you go into audacity a 4min track diminished to 59seconds
and plays back like an OLD CD player fast forwarding through the track... you get that choppy sampling....
All but one of the 32leaves tracks were that way and the ONE that wasn't was the one I already had off the CD... such is life...
I'll spend more time tweeking the settings, as I got useable tracks but they still have low audio level.
I couldn't increase it in Audacity, but I have other software that'll let me increase the audio level of a wav.
It's all "less than perfect", frankly I think I could get better results by capturing it with an external analog device and convert it back to digital on a subsequent playback.
I'm still very open to suggestions
