Audacity just looks cartoony & not very profesh. LMMS is #2 in my book.

TerminatorX is a good audio synthesizer which lets you "scratch" (& I use & love this program just for that!) but it's not audio *authoring* software.
I just checked out ardour and have been using and learning it for a few days now. GREAT program! I really like it! really impressive functionality! I also use reason and I have to say I dont think think that there is any program that can ever quite replace it. I dont use midi near as much as live audio but in my opinion reason 4 is still the ultimate midi work station.

Agreed about Reason 4. I use Audacity to create samples for my Reason creations though, and am looking into Ardour to record some live DJ sets. Audacity has a lot of options but is very intuitive. Kudos.
