thanks for responding finally
I have been out of office last week...
but my there is no anwser to my problem.
im fine with the audio in feature, i just mix the osc on a lower level in. thats maybe not perfect, but its totally ok with me.
It is an answer to your problem. Trigger circuit is after the a first amplifier stage, if the overall input volume is too weak, gate will not be triggered. Changing the resistor will increase input gain, so it will drive the trig detector harder.
They are two other solutions:
either you use a pream, as told by tertior
either you can use a compressor (software on your daw output track, or hardware before MB input)
both solutions will drive trigger circuit harder
BUT the triggering just does not work the way it should be.
i dont use mp3 player for triggering, i use f.e. the Arturia Spark, routed through my daw mixer (do you´ve seen the video i made in the other thread?) and it just dont work. why the MB just gets triggered, if the signal is clipping? using the audio in feature parallel is impossible this way!
It works when your daw is clipping just because the signal is more powerfull, louder and compressed.
What is your sound card? What kind of line output is it using +4dBu, -10dBv?
So basically, either you increase MB internal gain, either you increase signal level before input.
