Hi guys, I’m new on this forum. Glad to be here. English is not my first language, so please excuse if you will.
Today we unpacked a Rode usb mic, model NT. My girlfriend is the primary user. She likes to sing, covers , karaoke etc. But she’s not that technical. She used an app on her smartphone that did just that , play and rec famous songs and the app did everything for her. They even added some auto reverb.
Anyway I tried to show her a workflow that she can fallow when I’m not around. From YouTube she presses play and in Audacity Rec. But it’s not that easy, as you know it we need to configure some things. I’m a little nerdy myself about sound in general but when it comes to windows drivers I get lost. My configuration was as fallows: In windows settings I had as input the usb mic, output the headphones connected directly to the mic and Listen to this device checked. In Audacity I had as Wasapi as input and mic speakers as output. So it kinda worked and as expected we had delay from this workaround.
So my question is, is there another way to do this except overdubbing, because after searching on the web I found a free software that has an option called Two Sound Mixing that simply does that, without delay ( Listen to this device was unchecked in windows settings). The problem is that I really want to learn more about sound recording and Audacity is a good direction. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

With that microphone you can monitor yourself directly without going through the computer. (There is always some delay through the computer.)
Ty but I already tried that. As far as I understand the Wasapi actually records what goes out including vocals, thus the need for Listen To This Device settings. Unfortunately that setting goes a mile of a delay.
Isn’t there another way for Audacity to process and mix a primary and a secondary device all in one and on the go?
I kinda want a easy workflow for her to handle. Ty again guys.
