Re: Looking for a DAW that isn't impossible to use
My approach would be the TD-4's audio out directly into your computer's audio in. It sounds to me like the input sensitivity needs to be adjusted, if your computer allows you to do it. Barring that, I would get an intermediate audio interface, like an M-Audio Fast Track USB. Tons of versatility. Audacity is a great program for what you want to do and you're already familiar with it. This setup should do the trick for you.
