Controlling levels while making an audio recording in Cantabile 2 solo

While recording in Cantabile 2 solo how do I turn down the input levels without affecting the levels in my monitor speakers. I’m using a Rme babyface pro that allows me to plug my drummers roland drums into external audio input 3 and 4 of babyface pro but it’s too loud in the recording mix but when I turn it down then it’s not loud enough when we’re jamming. I can’t tell if I control levels with cantabile gui or Rme gui. Any ideas? Thanks Dave
