that seems to be working perfectly then,
you won't get a lot of volume plugging a mic into a line socket.

you're logic is good,
but your apparent assumption that you should get a good strong signal 
a mic into a line socket would lead to the wrong conclusion.

Try a line source that you know to be working, with a lead
that you know to be working.

Or try the Kaos pad and it's lead into some other device to checkit
