I’m on a Windows machine or Chromebook - how come I can’t monitor what’s being recorded in real-time?

At the moment, the audio latency is just too high in Chrome OS and Windows due to OS restrictions, so we decided to turn it off. This is in Microsoft's and Google's hands and will hopefully be sorted out in the near future.

Monitoring is however supported in Mac+Chrome and on iOS with the Soundtrap app.

    Many audio interfaces, such as the Scarlett Solo and M-Audio FastTrack feature direct monitoring through the audio interface. Direct monitoring does not include the effects (reverb, echo, distortion for guitars, etc.), but does enable the performer to hear a close approximation to what is being sent to Soundtrap.
