My audio is always too loud and distorts?

I'm quite new to the software, but I've been attempting to get it working for a couple weeks now.

My hardware and equipment is completely fine, but every time I try and record sound, it distorts because it's apparently too loud (this happens with even the quietest sounds, like tapping on my computer 5 feet from the microphone even when the gain is on its lowest).

So far, no options that I've found reduce the volume either, it's always just peaking on the SOFTWARE only, but on my interface (tascam us-4x4) the peak notification never comes on.

Am I blatantly screwing up? Any help would be appreciated.
