I can't speak for any particualr Disto (I've used SuSE 9.1 and FC3) but I would put a plug in for a great program called Audacity. It is a great editor for mp3 and wave files. You can import files or record through your sound card. I am not doing any heavy duty sound recording but I do record my kids and mix their songs. I also use Audacity to edit and change my music collection.
now ive used audacity on windows its ok for just you basic recording and editing but im tallking about really getting into the music. i guess i should have also added that i need a program with a synth and sequenser. All the in depth type stuff
there's one thing i know about linux, and that it isnt ready for media production. by this, i mean there no good video/music editors like there are for mac or windows. sure, linux has a few apps, but they dont even compare to apps like adobe premiere, after effects, soundforge, or others. for this, i had to completely go back to windows, since im in the video production field.
im still trying to get back to linux, windows just stinks. even if cinelerra is all i have.
for your audio, i can only suggest you try and run some programs in WINE or check out win4lin or vmware.
are you talking about electronic music production? check out the program Freebirth. its not pretty, but it has a 303 (kinda), a sequencer & some other tidbits. ive not used it but a friend of mine was messing around with it.
