Default punch in monitoring problem

hi, it might be a simple technique but how can a performer hear his already recorded track (with his voice) and sing on top of it before punch in recording. Whenever I do a punch in the singer does not hear his voice unless I press the record button. Is it something to do with montoring? I am using a C24 controller with my Hd system.

You'd have to open a new track, and put it into input monitoring (the I button on the track).
There's no other way you can hear what's on the track as well as what's coming in at the same time. Unless you route the mic input to both the record track and an AUX so it's always on.

Look at the transport buttons at the top of the EDIT window. Look for a green square "light" by the record "light". If its lit, you have Input-Only monitoring turned on. Alt-K will toggle it off
