I found this website looking for answers to an issue I'm having.
I'm using an old version of multitracking software from cakewalk, Pro Audio 9. I like this software.
Anyway, I bought an Alesis usb to mic cable for a more direct input.
The problem I'm having is, if I record on track 1 then want to record on a different track, I can't hear what I just recorded. Like if I lay down a rhythm and want to add a lead on a different track, I can't hear the rhythm I just recorded while trying to record the lead.
The reason for asking this is I'm looking into getting an audio interface such as Focusrite, Alesis, MBox; those styles. I don't want the same issues with these.
