No Playback

I don’t know exactly where this issue should go, but i’m experiencing difficulties with getting playback when i hit the record button. i simply use a USB mic and standard headphones. if i record something it sounds fine and plays back just fine when i hit the “play” button. but when i hit the “record” button there is no playback. i am however still able to record the second track. which is pretty useless with no audio. i know this has to do with my configuration but i just don’t know what to do. any advice for things to try would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

To listen to the first track while you record the second track you have to activate overdub (Transport menu).

thank you so much! this worked great! so simple yet so amazing! haha
