Good Question to Ask Swardy!
Might try decreasing your buffer size to cut lag time if you can, (think it’s CTRL+Q, audio, latency). You can edit timing on literally everything, once you learn how! (Also, if you’re mainly focused on recording audio, Logic or Pro Tools might be more efficient, but don’t go wasting cash!)
It’s good that you’re exploring DAW’s instead of just buying outright- a friend of ours spent a year deciding between several of them, and even though it’s a less popular software, he completely excels with it.
It’s really important remember that while different DAW’s and VST’s fit the styles of different artists, it’s not what you use, but how you use it! Technical problems can be a pain, but learning work-arounds and getting experience is infinitely more valuable and applicable to getting a good mix.
Hope this helps. :-)
