How can I record line level audio from my Firestudio Mobile to my laptop running Audacity, I can't figure out how to get the channels routed.

I have a Dell E4310 Laptop with a Firewire card. I can hear my turntable through the headphone output on the FSM, but can't figure out how to get the audio to play on my laptop. I can hear systems sounds made on my laptop via the headphone out on the FSM, but that's about it.

Thanks

Was just looking at Audacity, it does not seem to offer ASIO support. This may be the issue. 

1. The FireStudio Mobile (FSM) has mic/line level inputs. But no phono inputs. If the turntable has line level outputs, then connect those to the FSM, create a stereo audio track in Audacity, set levels and record.

2. If the turntable only has phono outputs, the tables would have to be connected to a turntable mixer that has phono ins and line level outputs.

Should the conditions of number 1 be met, and you still are not getting a level on record, please create a support ticket.  After checking, I can see you also have a copy of Studio One 3 Artist in your My.Presonus.com account that you can use to set this up with.
