Default Input Monitoring

Noob question! First applologies if this has been answered somewhere else, i have looked and cannot find it! :)

I have recorded a guitar rythm track using my Fast Track Pro interface and Pro Tools SE. I wan to be able to reherse the lead part whilst listening to the rythm track. I have added a new audio track for the lead part but can only here the guitar when performing an actual record. When i simply play the track i cannot hear any audio from the second guitar track. What am i doing wrong?

I don't know much about Pro Tools SE but is there a way to toggle between "Input Only Monitoring" and "Auto Input Monitoring"? If there is it should solve your problem. In PT Native/HD the shortcut is Option + K.

Hope this helps.

Same issue here. I was told by the Avid/M-Audio/Whomever They Are This Week staff that you have to record enable then actually record (you can throw it away later...etc, etc.) That is so incredibly counter-intuitive that I got a bit ticked off.

Anyway, playing by the rules, I loop-played back, loop-recorded, and practice after practice, after practice, found a track to keep. At some point during the procedings, I put my headphones down on my usb midi interface, and lo and behold, I could hear it over the playback, not while recording...you get the picture.

I'd really love to know how to solve this issue. I thought the point of having an external interface (I use the Fast Track C600) was to be able to do such things.

Sorry there's no answer, only empathy.
