    Hello,

    I'm sure this has been asked many times before but I can't seem to find an answer. I just bought a guitar and would like to hear what i'm playing real time. In other words I don't need to timeline involved, I just want to hear what i'm playing. So far I am recording what I am doing and then playing it back. Is there some sort of practice mode??? Or do I have to grab a different piece of software for this?

    Thanks guys.

    All you gotta do is double click on the track name on the left so the box comes up where you can pick effects, track presets, etc. Then underneath where it says the input, there should be a button that turns monitoring on or off. Monitoring is exactly what you want, so turn it on. Good luck!

    of course!

    p.s. the glam rock preset is pretty fun for pretending you are an 80's hair metal god
