As far as I know there isn't one. I looked and looked a few months ago, as I used Acid a lot and miss it loads.

I think that if you hang on a bit, a few months maybe, if this Linux roll continues, we'll start to see the main software houses beginning to release Linux versions.

In the meantime, email Sonic Foundry and pester them.

I'm not that familiar with these programs, though I've fooled around with Acid (it came bundled with my HP CDRW). When I have the time (hah!), I would like to compose my own electronica.

Have you tried GDAM? It's a DJ mixing type program for Linux with a sequencer and virtual turntables.

There's also a good listing of audio multimedia projects kept at debianlinux.net (despite the name of the site, the projects are general Linux, and not just Debian). You should peruse some of the projects.

Acid would definitely be a welcome addition to Linux.

I'm currently attempting to learn Ardour , which looks like it may be able to do just about everything Acid can, but the interface and documentation is somewhat difficult for me to navigate at present. So far I haven't even figured out how to load audio samples (maybe they need to be recorded into Ardour rather than loaded directly?).
Another interesting project, which I'm going to try out if knowledge of Ardour continues to elude me, is Gungirl .
But GDAM looks really good too...thanks for the link, spurious.

After messing with both Ardour and Gungirl, I've found out some useful info...

Gungirl is in a very early stage of development...although it may be useful for a quick mix, it's extremely limited in features and has a tendency to freeze on some wav formats rather than tell you they can't be read. Gungirl looks like it has pontential, but if you plan to do any serious mixing it's not even close yet.

Ardour does import audio files...but it took me about 20 minutes to find out how to do this. Although Ardour's interface is annoyingly strange to me, it still seems to be the most useful Linux application available for mixing.
