I can record my guitar by USB from amp to computer using audacity.
I also know how to record a microphone over a backing track using audacity [tried a couple of times then realized I can’t sing worth a lick], the point being I noticed that you can hit record and make an mp3 track loaded on audacity play while you record yourself speaking in a microphone and this is done obviously to sync the track with your voice.
So my question is/what I’m looking to do, is if I can put say an mp3 song in audacity and click a button and play that, while I play my guitar and record it and it be in sync? Does that make any sense? Can audacity do anything like that? And if so how do I go about doing that?
Trebor I already tried it like that and it wouldn’t work with the guitar, it will work with a microphone and record, but when I click the record button with the guitar plugged up it gives me an error, a big box pops up and says “Error opening recording device. Error Code 9997 Invalid sample rate”
