hi there,

i too can attest the quality of audacity. i've used audacity in a film
production capacity and have had much experience with proprietary
wave-editors; whilst i dont think visually, it is as appealing or perhaps
straight forward as its commercial counterparts, it has most of the same
funcitonality nonetheless. if ur interested in music software on linux, i
personally know of a few apps, namely: rosegarden, ardour (both
sequencers/multitrackers) and hydrogen (drummachine).

anyways check these linx out they should sort u out:

waveeditor roundup

massive collection of links to linux music apps.

oh yeah one more thing, for the most part its all free and OSS!

good luck
