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.

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.

This is what I'd use for music

I've used DeMuDi, and found it a rather pleasing debian based distro. Just had way more audio apps than I'd ever need.

Cool

Have you tried lmms(linux multimedia studio) or wired.
they are free and are the best DAW in linux.
lmms is considered as best by many but you should check wired also...
ps:i have only used lmms!
