Busy week! Little time for studio solution

A two-day intensive session for a project in The Netherlands, preparation for that session, work on some other projects and visiting family over the weekend: It leaves little time to play with the software studio setup to figure out the optimal solution.

Things I'd like to work on:

- Strengths and weaknesses of the applications that can be used.

- Optimized settings for the applications in the studio setup.

- Minimizing latency to the headphones.

- Making the recording robust. Preferably so that you can do all sorts of things with your computer while recording a show.

If other people have ideas or experience in this area that would be nice to know. I'll be looking around a bit but feel free to leave a comment or trackback as well.
