      Audacity is more considered as a audio editor, for DAW, maybe you could try Ardour or Zrythm?

        I used to use Audacity as DAW for recording before. Didn't have really problems with that, just needed to configure latency offset. But this time I'm using Garageband on Mac.

        In addition I was using iRealPro (also Mac) for autogenerating a scratchtrack with Drums, Keys, Guitar and Bass. Apart from Keys track I replaced all tracks with bass/guitar recordings and drums using Garageband.

        I've also added a flute track using musescore (where unfortunately the beat is a bit off; must be related to MIDI fonts, attack time too long?) and more recorded guitar tracks.
