     My needs are very humble: I only use qjackctl, Ardour, Hydrogen and 
some LADSPA plugins. I've seen that many people use a plethora of audio 
software (which use goes way over my head), but I really need only 
something to record guitar and bass, generate some drum tracks and 
process it a bit so it hides my awful playing. I hoped I could do it 
using standard repos in CentOS, but from the feedback in this list and 
some googling, it seems that's not the case.

     Thanks anyway,
