Tech: Prob with Audacity

I've recorded a track using Audacity. I can hear it through the headphones on playback no problem.
I want to record another line with it but when i record I can't hear anything, although it does actually record the second line.
How can I listen to the 1st track while recording the 2nd??

Check 'hardware playthrough' and 'software playthrough' in settings - enabling one of them may do the job. Other than that it's hard to comment without knowing more details (OS etc).

In Audacity preferences, select Audio I/O and you can choose to monitor playback while recording, and also hardware and software play thru. You may also have to go into your computer preferences to select the audio output--

I seem to remember having had your problem and discovering that, although I had selected the proper play thru options in Audacity, my computer output was set for something other than the headphone port.

Hope this helps.
