-To adjust the level of Mixxx'​s outputs and inputs, the main and headphone gain knobs in Mixxx should be used only as a last resort. Ideally, for the best sound quality, Mixxx and your sound card would always be at their maximum level without clipping and a control on the amplifier or speakers ​(for active speakers) ​would be used to adjust loudness (see [[http://​mixxx.org/​manual/​latest/​chapters/​djing_with_mixxx.html#​setting-your-levels-properly-gain-staging|the manual]] for a technical explanation). Sometimes this is not accessible though. In that case, the sound card may be the best place to adjust the loudness.+To adjust the level of Mixxx'​s outputs and inputs, the main and headphone gain knobs in Mixxx should be used only as a last resort.

 Many sound cards have physical knobs on them that control the gains of the outputs and inputs. Sound cards built into computer motherboards don't have these and sometimes sound cards built into DJ controllers don't either. However, they may still have controls accessible through the operating system'​s mixer program. How to access this is different on every operating system: Many sound cards have physical knobs on them that control the gains of the outputs and inputs.
