Since LMMS can get pretty resource intensive, render the track to a wav.  Your computer should be able to play and record a wav at the same time without a problem.  Audactity might be able to do this for you.

I don't recommend trying to run too man programs in Linux that use the sound card, as they often conflict with eachother.

Another option... In the past I've used a small portable multitrack recorder with headphones, and it works pretty good with the built-in mic, but they're usually like 100 bucks.

Let us know your progress.  These questions may be basic, but they're obstacles that all new users will face.

Hi again
I apologise for posting to questions at a time and this second one is
even slightly off-topic, but it just that I could use forever googling
on this and you guys probably have a answer for this which will
probably reduce my research time remarkably. I am in a Linux
environment (puppy Linux.. I love it)  I made this little hip-hop beat
and now i want to put my voice over it. How do I do that? I have a mic
that goes in to the mini-jack on the sound card, but I never tried
anything like this before. I think this i not really a LMMS question
since I think it will be easier to put my voice over the finished
beat-track as a sound file because of the computer power problems we
discussed in an earlier mail. So can I do this with audacity or sox or
something? I would like to be able to hear the beat and on the same
time being able to record my voice on top of it. From google I
understand that maybe not all sound carts are able to do this. Playing
out while at the same time recording inn. Well can anybody on this
list give my a little help on this? (At least I think if I burn the
rhythm track to a CD I will be able to play the CD and record both the
CD sound and the mic input at the same time).
