Can't hear audio whilst recording [SOLVED]

Using Audacity 2.1.0 on Windows 8.1. I’m using Audacity to create MP3s from my vinyl collection - and I’m having no trouble doing so. However, I can’t hear the audio during recording, and wanted to know whether this was possible. I have no problem listening to the recorded WAV file through the computer speakers whilst editing. Probably a simple settings issue which I haven’t fathomed?

You need to set Software Playthrough to on" in the Transport menu - see this page in the Manual:

Thank you, that’s fixed it…
