	I use both Ardour and Audacity for audio.  Ardour is a professional
grade multitrack recording system.  Basically a counterpoint to ProTools
on Windoze.  The latest release is really stable.  So what would I
recommend?  If you don't have sound cards with more than two inputs or
you're not interested in multitrack recording (although Audacity will do
this at a very basic level) you probably want to go with Audacity.  I
think that for your stated goals Ardour is too complex a tool.  Which
one do I use the most and like the best?  Ardour.

	I believe that muse and rosegarden are used mostly for MIDI about which
I know next to nothing so I can't give you any advice on that.
