I recently set up a Linux Mint 18 machine, which has an electric piano plugged into it via a USB sound card.

Now, the input works: we can record sounds from the piano; and the output works as we can play them back, but is there a tweak or a program that will allow us to hear the input as it is played?


If recording with Audacity, yes, you can!

Select Preferences, then the Audio I/O tab, then turn on Software Playthrough.
Click in the right-hand recording VU meter with the microphone symbol to toggle monitoring on/off.
