Hi
i hope that you have the audio drivers installed and working and of course tested with your headphone..best way to do this is to play any song in media player and monitor it on your headphone...
the default settings for most DAW( Digital Audio Workstations) including ACID will be to mute the audio output when recording. This primarily is done to avoid feedbacks during recording. Anyways coming to the point. Since people would like to hear whats been recorded there is a scheme called as direct monitoring. I believe in ACID it is called as "Input Monitoring" and it basically is a small speaker shaped icon that appears next to the Record Arm Button once it is armed. Click on Input Monitoring and make sure its turned ON. Now you can listen while u record.
Hope this helps...contact me if u need further help

    I've been having this same problem with acid music studio 7. I tried what vaibhav1203 said, but this icon does not appear when I hit arm for record. I can't see anything like input monitoring anywhere.

I got a blue snowball microphone and had 2 problems. On XP, I can get it recognized and record stuff (I use Acid Pro) but while I am recording (with headphones) I dont hear anything in the head phones....


Thanks for purchasing the Snowball! The problem doesn't look directly related to the mic (as it's purely USB) and monitoring is dependent on the capabilities of the recording software being used. For direct monitoring, we recommend GarageBand and Audacity.

My microphone is not working ,please help


make sure you have a microphone first in your laptop.. some laptops don't have a built in mic. can you hear music? if so, then the sound card is OK. now double click the speaker icon at the bottom right hand corner, go to options, recordings and set it to RECORDINGs.. now make sure it's not muted and hopefully that'll take care of it.

msn live messenger has a good audio/video testing utility built in. give it a shot.

No Real Time Sound from USB Port in Headphones


The problem is due to the design of the DELL Laptop itself. It is not dsigned to monitor the incoming signal. I bought a cheap Behringer UCA202 USB-Audio Interface. It provides for real time monitoring the incoming sound. I can also hear the accompanying music while I play along with pre-existing tracks. It's not the highest quality but it was only 25$ so well worth the price.
