That is absolutely correct! Audacity is a nice Editor but not a capable
recorder/arranger. Ardour has all, one needs to work fluently and with
minimum limitations with musicians, that simply want to record and
arrange/mix music. And it can do everything you would do with Audacity
as well. Thanks Jack you can even run Ardour synched to a videoplayer
and thus work on soundtracks as the big boys would do ;-)

I second that strongly. Go for it and tell your friends :-)
