Often the record level is set by the record control.  Try:

    mixer =rec mic rec 100

Give us the output from the "mixer" command (without any arguments),
"dmesg | grep pcm" and the contents of /dev/sndstat.

Some sound devices also have a 20db pad on the mic input which may
need to be disabled.  Depending upon the specific sound driver there
may be a mixer control which changes this.
