Multitrack recorders - Ecasound or Ardour
Perhaps you actually want a tracker such as SoundTracker here. (there's plenty 
to choose from).

> -Soundfont enabled realtime synth

Other recommends here: ZynAddSubFX, for when you want something that sounds 
nice. Hydrogen, for drums.

> -Basic effects for the multitracker: simple reverb + simple equalizer

LADSPA (Dunno about 'simple': creox? ecamegapedal?)

Quantiser in MIDI editor, never seen one in what I would call an 'Audio' 
editor' Note tuning (?) hmm?

AGNULA/DeMuDi-1.2.0 or PlanetCCRMA

The latest version of DeMuDi installs in under an hour. You have to be 
prepared to spend a certain amount of time figuring things out for yourself, 
but this approach involves the minimum brain strain.
