Click the little speaker icon on the track to enable monitoring.

Ooooooh, you mean the actual recording you did before.

What is your interface and what are you trying to listen out of?

Interface?? im not sure if i know what you mean. I am recording out of my line 6 amp with an aux to my laptop. Not the best sound but its all I have. I would be interested in what you are talking about.

Create a new track
Arm the track
Below the arm button, there's a button for input monitoring. It's a little speaker. Click that.

When you arm the track, you should get signal going into the meters. If not, it's a routing issue, and has to do with your computer's I/O setup

thanks i figured it out but when i play there is a delay. it takes the sounds about a second to play thru to my headphones. Is this because im using my line out on my amp? is there something i can do to fix this?

It's because your computer's cheap soundcard is not meant to handle serious audio recording.

You need an audio interface like the Line 6 POD Studio series, Focusrite Saffire, Presonus Audiobox, etc. You may be able to cut down on the lag right now buy downloading the ASIO4ALL drivers and using them instead of your stock sound card, though.

Try plugging your headphones into your amp, if it's the monitoring that's delayed.


Also, MatrixClaw, what happened to your BTBAM avatar?

I changed it for Christmas to one with a Santa hat on it and I forgot to save the original and didn't want to keep a Christmas one up all year
