Turn on overdub (I think it's in the transport mccu). This allows you to listen to a track while recording on top of it. Wear earphones to listen for best results. Once you press R to record with the file you want to listen to loaded, press N for "new track" and press space bar to play the track. You may speak when you need to.

Subject: [audacity4blind] Recording and listening at the same time

Hi all, I have yet another question for you all. I have a music track which I need to use, but I need to record some speech over it, this is to create a podcast intro, does anyone know if it is possible for me to hear the music track while recording my speech? the speech will not need to start until around the middle of the track. Thank you in advance.
