No. Audacity doesn’t do anything in real time except record and play back. The closest thing to editing you can do is press Pause during a recording.

If you press Stop, Audacity will start a new timeline and not add to the existing recording like Pause will.

After you get your song into Audacity, then you can edit your brains out. Audacity is a Post Production editing tool.

After all the actors and singers go home, you sit in a dark room with Audacity and make the actual finished song out of the pieces they did.

When you see pictures of a movie camera, the thing on top holds the movie film. It usually holds 1000 feet which works out to 11 minutes. Then they have to change film. That two hour long movie you sat through last week at the CinePlex was made up of 11 minute chunks stuck together in a dark room by an editor.

Audacity is the sound version of that.
