It's a shame you have to be careful with latency though. You didn't so much with TDM. Whatever option you take these days is a bit of a backward step and a compromise IMO.

As a composer type dude I like to track with EQ and comps but not commit because like a lot of guys, I'm usually concentrating on composing and/or playing.
