Sound Card Output is very loud!

Anyone here who use Win7 and emu 1212m / 1820m?

I use a Mackie VLZ3 mixer and i get very loud signal from the sound card. The routing is:

1212m (clear monitor out, w/o any feedbacks @ +4 and -10db i/o settings and channel faders @ 0db and various sources...) => Mackie tape in => Mackie Control Room output

(I have also tested the same routing by inserting the soundcard's signal at Mackie's stereo return input but its also loud. At this input i have a volume knob to cut down some dbs but i must have it in a really low value to take advantage of the Mackie control room volume knob)

I have unbalanced connections with well working cables

I think that there is a problem with EMU drivers (not officially compatible with win7)...

What do you think?
