Through my job, I've used soundbooth for my various audio editing needs over the years and have gotten pretty used to its interface. Lately I've been getting into playin the guitar and singing but I've found, for whatever reason, that sondbooth doesn't seem to let you record yourself playing an instrument then listen to it through headphones while you record your vocals (or another intrument) on top. Garage band does this, but it doesn't let you view the wave-view of the instrumental (only a flat timeline). I like seeing the shape of the music, like in soundbooth, as I record over because it helps with timing and fine tuning. So I am aware of software like Logic and Ableton live and even Reaper... But before I go demoing each of them I was curious if any of you had experience with what I want to do and knew which one would be likely the best option. While I obviously don't want to break the bank for features I'll never use, I'm more concerned with going too-basic and limiting myself or having to drop more cash later to upgrade to something else anyways down the line. Appreciate the help!
