LInux Multitrack Studio

I have been playing with Ardour for about a week now and find it intriguing. I am looking for recommendations for a multiple input sound card that plays well with Linux. If i were to try to build a multitrack studio (just for personal use, not a big professional rig), what are some recommendations for hardware and software?

Current setup is:
SUse 9.3 Pro
Athlon XP 2000+
160GB HD
Onboard AC97 audio

For hardware, apart form the M-audio delta's and the RME Hammerfall series documented on the ardour website an audigy soundblaster is good enough for personal use. The main requirement is good alsa support. Jack (as you probably know) at is a must.

For related software, you could try

Muse, at
Hydrogen, at
fluidsynth at

This is a very short list. Most of these sites have links to many more sites.

Since I see this thread... if I wanted to do voice recording, what kind of microhone do I need for some decent quality? (Not musical, but interviews, etc.)

I'm using ardour / ecasound with an M-Audio Delta 1010LT this thing took like 10 min to setup with linux and works great. I like Sure mics and they have a whole line of mics for speech.
