If I were building a studio for myself I would purchase something like
a new Neve 5088 desk, and use Ardour with RME, and Mytek converters.
And when I win the lottery, I will. :-)

I only rock reels when I razor-blade edit. I'm not completely
unfamiliar with digital audio software, but every studio I ever
engineered in has been analog. I do some mastering in Sound Forge.

Ideally I'd like to submix the drums down to a stereo pair of outs so I
only use 2 channels on my console, same for guitars, percussion

I'd be comfortable with either. After all, they made records with
destructive editing for decades. :-)

Well that changes things considerably for me. Punch-ins (and outs) are
a fundamental function for any recording device like this. Why is it
unstable in this area?
From what I've seen there should be a workaround for this, right?
Record another track, or region in the same track and drag the regions
to fit around the punch. No?
I just installed Ardour on my desktop at home. I don't do any audio
work at home so the machine is running Ubuntu (not studio) and it's
primarily used for surfing and other basic productivity activities. It
doesn't have any special audio hardware in it. I installed it to begin
familiarizing myself with it.
