How to read a track on my turn table before recording

Hi to every body !
I'm a new user of Audacity and my question is very simple:
Before recording tracks from my turn table connected with USB port, can I read (listen) tracks to choose which one will be recorded ?
Is my question clear enough ? Sorry for my english (I'm french !)
Thanks
Michel

Yes, just turn monitoring on by clicking in the Recording meter.

See this page in the Manual: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/met ... #recording

It's useful to be able to do this as you can then set the recording levels before making the recording.
