It's "latencies." There's more than one.

The adjustable one is Recording Latency where you set overdubbing so each new voice or instrument overlays the others perfectly.

But there's also Machine Latency which is the time your voice takes to go into Audacity and come back out again. You don't set that one. In general, you can't listen to your computer when you record.

Without actually changing the Audacity programming, the only way around that is listen to the microphone, mixer or other interface or device.

Describe your microphone or microphone system.
