I don't want to speak for Lee but I think maybe he's saying that the
basic setup of how a DAW app like Pro Tools and Ardour move audio
around is about 98% identical.

There are a LOT of questions on this list about how to create a basic
template, how to insert a plugin, how to use a limiter/compressor/EQ
on a track for mastering, etc. I tend to agree with Lee that even if
you don't want to run Pro Tools that sort of stuff is so similar in
function and use that an engineer cannot be hurt by knowing how it's
done in a generic sense and any Pro Tools book will help with that
level of understanding.

Just my view,
