Need Help on Cool Edit Multitrack Recording

    I'm trying to record multitrack acoustic music where I am the only musician. So for example, I lay down track one with rythm guitar, then play it back in headphones while I record some type of accompaniment in track two. I'm recording each track with one mic run through a Sound Blaster Audigy.

    PROBLEM: When I record the second track I can't stop track 1 from playing over track 2 and being re-recorded as part of track two. In other words I need to have the prior tracks play in my headphones (so I can play along) but not recorded on the current track.

    There has got to be a simple way to stop this from happening but I'll be damned if I can find it.

    PLEASE HELP if you know the answer.

    The problem lies in how you have your WINDOWS MIXER set.

    Thank you so much. That was spot on. When I become a fabulously wealthy recording star I'll write a song about you.
