Audacity Click Track While Recording Setup Tutorial (Recording To A Click)

In this video, I’m going to show you how to set up an Audacity click track while recording (or metronome/rhythm track), so that you can listen to it while playing along, for an in-time performance.

Recording your music to a click track is recommended for recording a professional-sounding performance. I go over why you should consider using a click in more detail in this video.

In Audacity, the click track function is referred to as a Rhythm Track. You can set the BPM, time signature, swing and the sound of the click, before generating it as audio. It’s simple to use once you’ve gotten started, but there are a few nuances to using the feature that I cover in this video to help you.
