    Console > SB Sound Card

    I'm wondering if anyone can explain the different inputs that are present on the back of Sound Blaster sound cards...specifically an Audigy B800. I am trying to send a signal from a Mackie's main outs (1/4") into the Blaster. I hooked it into the mic input, but it is distorting wicked in Audition. I am not familiar with sound card operation, and thought that perhaps it was because the Blaster's mic input is set for mic level sources, but I have no idea if sound cards work that way. Now, if I send a very low signal level to the sound card, I get good-sounding audio at acceptable levels in Audition, but I'd like to set the Mackie up so I get good levels there, and then send that to the sound card. I have no idea what all the inputs on the sound card are (no manual). Any hints, tricks, tips, ideas, etc?

    sound blaster cards are not made for recording

    if you do, use a spidif in

    otherwize you should get a real interface

    get the mackie card if you have an onyx
