Default I just can't seem to get audio, click, and midi notes to all align on the grid.

I'll try to explain this as best I can. I'm sure there's some combination of settings that would fix this but I just can't figure it out. I have major problems aligning everything to the grid, especially when audio is involved.

If I align the transients in my audio tracks with the grid, then the click doesn't hit right on the grid/transients and sounds off from the audio. Similarly, if I record midi notes, in order to align them with the perfectly-aligned-to-the-grid audio, they all have to be pulled about a 32nd-note early (all midi, including percussion). This makes quantizing midi a pain because quantizing it to the grid is actually making it out of time with the audio (since it will be late). I know you can quantize with an offset but it also makes it difficult to export to notation when everything is off the grid for playback purposes.

I would just LOVE to be able to have audio transients perfectly on the grid, and be able to have midi and click perfectly on grid with it, without any playback issues. I'm sure through delay compensation and midi offset there's a way to make this happen but I just have no idea what I'm doing.

If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated, since this has hampered my workflow for so long and I'm just fed up with it.
