Yes, you are correct.  Ardour is what you need.  You also need a good
sound card like an M-Audio Delta 44 (4 analog inputs, 24/96), Delta 66
(4 analog inputs, 2 digital, 24/96), Delta 1010lt (8 analog inputs, 2
digital, MIDI...), Delta 1010 (8, 2, MIDI, external A/D/A), ST Audio
(Hoontech) DSP2000 C-port (8, 2, MIDI, external A/D/A), or the Terratec
version (I can't remember the model number, it's Phase something or
other I think).  Trying to get all the levels right with a mixer prior
to going to 2 tracks is a study in frustration.  No matter how good you
get it you'll still wish you could play with the individual levels
later.  The Delta 44 would be the bottom line for me.
