I’m running 10.14.6 Mojave. new at Audacity and when recording can’t hear the sound. Is there a button some place that I click on? On some recording devices you can choose. I want to listen while recording. Thank You Bill
Click on Transport (menu) > Transport Options > Software Playthrough: make sure it is checked.
same problem. when I click on Software Playthrough, I hear as I record, but it is delayed and not in real time.
That is normal. If you need to hear yourself without a delay (for example for overdubbing or voice recording) you need an audio interface that sends sound directly to your headphones.
Thanks for your prompt response. Since I used to be able to voice record and listen at the same time (I read books for the blind), I have to assume that I changed some setting that inadvertently caused this. I’m really not at all tech savvy, so perhaps you can suggest where in Audacity or Windows 10 I might try my luck.
What microphone and/or interface are you using to record?
I think I’m too stupid for this conversation. I don’t know what is meant by interface. I’m using a Win-tech headset with mic (wh-2688) with its 2 mini jacks (red & green) plugged in to a Fujitsu PC. There is no special sound card. Drivers are by Realtek
Problem solved. Disabled Transport> Software Playthrough. Enabled playback on the Microphone tab in the Realtek Audio Manager.
Thanks for your help. Perhaps this will help some other dope like me.
Gotta love the pup. Looks smarter than me…
