    Question Built-in Input Too Quiet?
    Hi everyone,

    I just recently purchased a new MBP, and occasionally I like to record acoustic guitar via cable to the laptops built-in input. For some reason whenever I record the input is very low and hardly audible unless I crank up the dial on my mic settings on the guitar itself, which doesn't produce a clear sound. This happens in both Logic and GarageBand, and I've made sure that the Line-In input volume was set to max.

    Before I got the new macbook pro I had the 1st Gen which recorded fine, does anybody know why the new ones do this?

    Have you adjusted the input volume found in System Preferences - Sound - input?

    Yes I have, it's at full blast but still doesn't sound anywhere nearly as loud as it did on my last macbook pro... odd.
