Hi! You were right!! I didn't notice the plugins from Ardour, and
couldn't do many things.  I read the Tutorial and it is incredibly
great!  I don't think i will use Audacity with jack for a long time...
for my simple use of home recording (rehersals, classes, little demos)
Ardour is just perfect :-)

Thanks you all!
