- Select your desired Audio input device via Setup > Audio:
- Change to the Song View (or press SHIFT + ` on your keyboard) and click Add Audio or Project Menu > Create > Add New Audio Track to add a new audio track to your project:

- Click on the Input monitor icon in the Recording area to enable input monitoring, allowing you to prelisten to the signal that is being input, via your speakers.
- Ensure your input signal is not clipping, and levels are adequate - if your input signal is distorted (the meter will turn red) or the input signal is too quiet, adjust the input gain on your sound-card, or adjust the output gain or volume of the device you’re recording.
- Click the Record button to arm your recording, or press the / key on your keyboard, then listen for the count in, and capture any desired audio. Once you’ve finished recording, press the Record button again, or press the / key on your keyboard again.
