I'm a musician of 20 years. that Audacity is the easiest to use, and with LADSPA plugins can keep up with Acid Pro, Sound Forge, and many others.

audacity is nice, but something just feels incomplete about it. I would really like to see something like ableton live as FOSS. Some programs do various feature that it has like Ardour, but nothing really in my opinion even comes close to it, But audadcity is nice for general purpose recording. I think that there is a problem in Linux of no truly good audio libraries.(i am not talking about alsa or Arts). Jack is cool but i think it adds unneeded levels of complicationl.

I've played with Pro Tools a little, we really don't have anything that easy and fucntional at the same time. When I listen to the sounds I've created though, Im getting it just as good as Pro Tools or Acid Pro.

I'm voting for Hydrogen, because I think it's a very clean and straight-to-the-point program that doesn't try to be too fancy, but does what you need. Of course, these applications don't really have much of a common denominator. Even Ardour and Audacity are miles apart in what they are trying to archieve, so it's not really fair to compare them.

My main criticism with Ardour is that they should have consulted audio professionals in the making. It definitely doesn't look like they did. The program works great, but the workflow is a disaster.
My main criticism with Rosegarden is that they should make up their minds what the program is supposed to do. It is not usable as a score editor, as it lacks basic features like double-staffs and independent voices. And it lacks editing features as a DAW and sampler.

Rosegarden
 
I'm voting for Rosegarden4. It has come a long way in the last couple of years. However, it is still very buggy. The main thing it needs is a bugzilla to make sure that all the undesirable features get managed in a disciplined way.

It is also quite hard to get contemporaneous sound working with rosegarden, so I wrote a howto to help at least Fedora Core 7 users and maybe others:

I have logged some bugs in the RedHat bugzilla, but really think RG needs one of its own.
:D

ah man.. I just voted for audacity... I meant to vote for Ardour..
would have been hydrogen but it seamed to be neglected for a while.

Ardour, hydrogen and Jammin. If i didnt have any one of those... I'd have windows.. urgh

I saw Audacity on TechTV one day, years ago. I fell in love with it instantly, and use it to this day on all of my OSes.
