I have a 1/8 adaptor in my mic output on my laptop, and the speakers in the speaker output. I would like to know, when your recording things how can you hear what you are recording while playing? I have to play my guitar with no sound and assume I didn't make any mistakes.

i use audacity and there's no delay, are using like guitar rig or something?
