I've used a Sound Blaster AWE32 / Liveice combo before.

Sounds like your record volume is set WAY to high or more likely you are
recording from the wrong input. Make sure that it's the _line_in_ that's
selected for recording in you mixer app.

Also If i remember you have to use HALF_DUPLEX mode (in liveice.cfg) at
least if you're using MIXER mode... I'm not sure about in SIMPLE mode,
expirement.
