i Think I might know what your talking about. Your trying to RECORD right? And you want what's already RECORDED to PLAY AS YOU RECORD right?

If that is what you want, go to edit --> Preferences

Then there's a checkbox in the bottom of this new window saying something like "play back track while recording"

And presto!

Hope I can help

Do that^ and also check your recording input in that same preferences menu. Make sure the recording input is set to whatever interface you are using, not your computer's soundcard/mic input. And what interface are you using?

alesis io2 interface. i'm plugging in an sm57 and connecting it via usb. the thing i'm saying is that, there is no sound being produced at all. i mic my amp and play the guitar, and no sound is being picked up into the computer.

Do you have the right recording source chosen? It's the drop down menu on the right of the volume slider. You might have to choose "line in" if your interface is going into your PC's line in, even though you are using a mic.
