I have a bit of a problem. I found my grandpa's old cassette player so I figured I'd start sampling the tapes that him and my dad played when I was a kid. Problem is, when I record it into a DAW or any other recording program, it's stupid loud. Everything sounds distorted and shitty. The cassette player is hooked up to my computer through the analog mic input using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cord, then a 1/4 inch to 3.5 mm adapter that goes directly into the cassette player.
