Audacity 2.0.5 is very old. The current version is 2.2.2 and is available here: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/

For "overdub" recording (recording a track while listening to other tracks), the settings at the bottom of the Transport menu should be:
Software Playthrough: Off (not selected)
Overdub: On (selected)

Just presss Shift + Record or shortcut Shift + R to record on a new track

See the ISACITY MANUAL: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/pla ... tml#record
