Can`t hear my USB mic whilst recording

Recommended Posts

Windows 10
USB mic
44khz / 24 bit recording

Device Manager: Sound -- Intel(R) Display Audio // RG6818 microphone // Synaptics HD Audio

Audio inputs & outputs: (Headphone symbol) HD Audio 2nd output ( Synaptics HD Audio) 
(Microphone symbol) RG6818
Stereo mix (Synaptics HD Audio)

Windows Sound: Output -- HD Audio 2 output (Synaptics HD Audio) my Bose speakers, I guess  // Input RG6818 USB Microphone

Failed to get ASIO to work so now working with MME.

I want to listen through headphones to tracks playing.......together with my vocals recording through the microphone.

But I can`t hear my vocal in the headphones. Everything records just fine, but obviously I need to hear what I`m singing. To get round it I have to remove one side of earphones so I have the band track playing in my left ear, but can hear what I`m singing in the room.

This is no way ideal and the condenser mic does pick up slight sound from the removed headphone.

I assume it`s a driver or routing error -- but leave it to you, the experts, to point me in the direction of a solution. And as an aside: the same problem occurs in Audacity.

The headphones are plugged in the headphone jack on my Bose speakers.

Have you tried enabling the input monitor? It's the button to the right of the record button.
