Can Audacity do this or is it just an editor ?
audacity works great for multi tracking....
you've encountered the phenomenon of LATENCY, is all...
use the time shift tool to "drag" the offending track
forward/backwards in time til it lines up....
use the magnify tool, click it 7 or 8 times so ya can clearly see the
spikes where the accents are to align them timewise...
i usually go for a downbeat, and usually not the very first one in a
song....gives it a better chance to lock in the groove if ya do it a
little later in the song...
as an extra bonus, the time shift tool can make ya the master of the
groove...ya can drag a track ahead/behind/on top of the beat til stuff
i'm doing an album with audacity, it can definitely be done...
check http://songplanet.com/ or http://jimipocius.com/ for examples...
good luck, and happy tracking!!
