Audacity has such option "software playthrough" but unfortunately Audacity is not applicable for my case. Other software misses that feature it seems, at least I can't find anything that turns the monitoring on/off:

Audition 3, 5.5 / WaveLab 6, 7

Is there a way to hear what is being recorded?

Windows 7. On-board sound card (no input). External ESI UGM96 (not full duplex it seems). I want to record via ASIO.

For Audition 3.0, go to Options -> Monitoring -> Audition Mix, select either Smart Input (to monitor an input only if it's mapped to an armed track) or Always Input (to always monitor the input).

For more information, see here:

Thnak you much! P.S. Actually I've found these options in a different place of AA 3.0 - in panel 'Session Properties' (multitrack view only). – Pavel Vlasov Apr 17 '12 at 22:29
