If you have qamix installed, it might be make it a bit
easier to adjust the settings of your sound card (more
user friendly). If you are accustomed to reading
schematics and block diagrams, the jackit schematics
may give you the complete high level architecture
view, you may be looking for. Or in text format,
Ardour->Jack->Alsa->Sound Card->Ext/Internal I/O would
be the heirarchy. the text I am describing here is
best viewed from the schematics (more appropriately,
the block diagram). ALSA driver settings, are the
issue you are facing. Alsamixer is a utility (integral
part of ALSA package) to set the input/output levels
of your sound card. Once the correct signal level is
acquired into your sound card, you can move up the
stack, and achieve the desired goals. But, for now
take the time to familiarize yourself with the sound
controls and try to establish a clean signal, before
getting caugh up in the higher level application

Hope this helps... unlike windows, when in doubt, you
have a helpful community to turn to. So hang in there
and take step at a time... Little patience will pay
