    Hi,
    A click track is pretty much a digital metronome. You set is to how many clicks or beeps per minute you want, and how many beeps per measure. the first one is more of a beep, and the remaining ones of each measure are clicks.
    that way you know exacly when a new measure starts ect. once the recording is done, you can delete it.

    It seems that when I create new tracks with audacity they are always a hair behind. I believe this is because I'm using a USB microphone.:dontknow: I can work around this by using a clicktrack and only listening to that, while muting the other tracks. But I'd like to be able to hear my other tracks for intonation purposes. Am I missing something here?

    I've got that too. What I did is:
    1 create click track
    2 record your thing, but play some notes exacly on the clicks first. after that you can zoom in on both tracks and make sure that the clicks and your first notes are at the exact same place.
    3 record second part exacly like the first ect.
    4 if you're done, remove the click track and your notes/clicks.
    I just played one measure in front of the actual piece I was recording.

    Thanks for the quick reply. If I delete just .04 seconds of my first track (before I start playing), that is all it takes. Didn't think such a small amount would be discernible.

    OK, did that. But now which do I listen to when laying down new tracks? The click track, my previous track, both?

    doesn't really matter. whatever works for you.
    I play everything I have so far including the click track.
    If You delete the 'lag' between the click track and your recording after ever part, all you have to do is delete the first four seconds or so of the entire recording, and delete the click track and you're done.
