Newbie question

No sound while recording

I can listen to tracks that I record but not while I’m recording them. I can see the input level meter moving, but no sound through the headphones until I play it back. How can I listen to what I’m recording? Thanks

Hi,

Windows has two mixers a “record” and a “play” one. To hear your input when you record you need to have your soundcard record source presumably Line or Mic faded up and not muted in the “play” mixer, see link.
