I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment Any DAW for Violin?
Electric or acoustic? For acoustic I don't anticipate any special requirements over and above standard DAW features.

comment Will water affect the sound of the cajon
What you need to do is find someone with a water damaged cajon, and see whether it sounds different from before. I can think of one person.

comment Can music theory help hobbyist instrumentalist get better at playing?
You know some of the "theory" of literature even if you've not been taught it. You do need to know about metaphors to understand, appreciate or write poetry. You might not need to know it's called a "metaphor"! You find it easy to remember it's "I think that there will never be / a poem as lovely as a tree", not "I think that there will never be / a poem as nice as a bush" - because you know the former rhymes and scans. Will add something about this.

Obviously turn "distortion" off; that's really all you have.
