I can't hear or monitor sounds before I record them on Acid Music Studio. I have tried everything I know to do. Everything seems to hooked up correctly but I can only hear myself through the monitors after it's recorded. Is this strange?

this is a sound card configuration issue. many new pcs and laptop have the sound card configuration in the registry. many previously available functions are either turned off/disabled or just not configured.
its a slightly different solutuion between vista and XP, the screen look different.
1st open the control panel and select the sound & devices ICON.
this opens a view of tabs for the sound card.
under playback...on XP you need to select the mic or line is as an available monitor.
under playback in vista, the default playback device will be displayed. a right click on the tab area provides an option to view disabled devices.
again under vista if you double click on the playback device itself, a new set of tab views appears.
this new set may support a check box for "RecordMonitor" or it may have a tab for Input Monitor.
in either case set the input monitor on so you can hear your input while recording in Acid.
If these options are not available on your screen, then the solution will be more complicated.
You wioll need some registry expertise. rather than that thoiu, try to get the latest sound card driver, which may have the devices configured.
if not then i would need more detailed information on your hardware, sound card, driver version and operating system to help you any further.
under xp and vista you can find the registry entries you are looking for by searching for one that is more frequently there.
You could look for EnableRecMonitor or MasterVolume etc.
the other registry entries found there are fairly easy to follow to set them the way you want them to be. In some cases you may have to add the necessary registry entries, but as I said that's not that intuitive...
It sounds like the software is having trouble locating a recording device. If you go in to the settings for the application, you should be able to select/see the audio input devices. Does the device you are trying to record to show up and is it selected as the active recording device?
Check to make sure all your audio drives are configured. Sometimes the microphone jack isn't configured with the program. No audio comes through. Another suggestion is to, try Audacity. It is a free audio recording program, and it helps to master even some of the hardest studio production software programs.
