1 Only get minimal input level on Cubase LE from microphone
I am just getting started on home recording so my expertise level is low. I have an E-MU 1010 PCI card and interface and the E-MU 2020 IO Daughter card. I have a microphone plugged into the left line input and the left and right line outs are connected to amplified speakers. I have the Patchmix DSP mixer application running and Cubase LE.

The problem is that no matter what I try and do in the Patchmix app or in Cubase LE, sound coming in through the microphone barely moves the input meter on Cubase LE. It does, however, seem to be pushed out to the amplified speakers at good volume. This means that when I record something it sounds loud when I am recording but when I play it back it is barely audiable. The system is using something called ASIO - which I dont really understand.

Any suggestions?

mics need preamps. you need a mic input, not a line input.

the line input is used for high level signals, like a cd player, a keyboard, etc...
