Applies to: all Focusrite interfaces
With Adobe Audition, there are two options available for when it comes to recording audio: waveform and multitrack view
These two options work differently. If attempting to record using the Waveform view, this will not actively pass the input signal to the software output while actively recording to allow "real-time" monitoring. If using this view and needing to monitor the signal while actively recording, all interface models will offer a form of direct monitoring for the analogue inputs on the interface. Some will implement this through direct options on the front of the interface while others may utilize a control software (Scarlett MixControl, Saffire MixControl, Focusrite Control) to allow adjustments on signal routing. If unsure how this may be implemented for your particular Focusrite interface, more can be found within the documentation for the particular model.
If requiring monitoring of the signal as it passes through the Audition software (e.g. software effects applied that want to be heard while recording), it would require using the application's Multitrack view as it will provide a "input monitoring" option on tracks added. As a note to this, if "input monitoring" for the track being recorded is enabled while actively monitoring the direct inputs of the interface, it would result in hearing a doubled signal. To avoid this while monitoring the software signal, disable the direct monitor option for the interface.
