Line level to mic level on PC - lower output volume | use a direct box | use other options?

0

In this instance, I would like to hook an output of my audio interface (1/4in output on a focusrite 18i20) to the mic input on my PC (just standard 3.5mm input on the motherboard).

I see a bunch of answers on this site, but I do not know if the input levels on a PC are different than other equipment.

You will need to attenuate the output (of the line level output) by at least 30 dB, or you will over-drive the input (of the mic level on PC).
