Of course it isn't! It's duplicating the function of a half-million dollar studio of a couple decades ago...good luck figuring that out if you'd never done recording before.
New software can be very confusing at first, and often the manuals are not a big help.

Sometimes Internet tutorials can help, sometimes they can even confuse. It depends.

The way to go about it is to take it one step at a time and gradually learn how to use it. I know we all want instant gratification, and that's possible with some things, but remember how long it took you to read and write. It's pretty user friendly now.
