i knew it was superior i use it triggated with my electronic drums
mastering need a few of peripherals such as compressor/expander / limiter / equalizer and it is expensive to have analogs.
but currently there are good pluguins (T-racks/Izotop Ozone and a lot of mastering bundle pluguins) to heat the recording and have a result similar to that of analog peripherals.
however I prefer to use sound forge with varying pluguins between Waves, Blue Tubes, Tc eletronic and more.
plus i can help you just let me know how to.( mixing or/and mastering-using pluguins)
edit:about drum edition its easy when you record as Midi
