[linux-audio-user] Cooledit substitutes?

Do these words - "Audacity seems to work well..." - mean, there are
successful stories in using Audacity with jack server? I have tried both
(Audacity-1.2 and PortAudio-19) from CVS, replacing PortAudio lib while building
Audacity, without any success.

Actually, I think it's being actively developed on OSX and Linux with a
Windows port, but I could be wrong. Audacity seems to work well of you
follow the Wiki build instructions to get it to build with Portaudio and
to use Jack.

I've only just gotten my studio back together and hope to start beating on
it soon. In any event, the OSS emulation layer in ALSA works pretty well
with Audacity, not much lag when capturing all 4 channels from my Delta44.
Perhaps you should give it a shot?
