[ubuntu-uk] What do I need (live audio recording)

For the last few years, I've been using a Tascam Portastudio to do live
recordings, then exporting the files down to the PC for editing.
It strikes me that technology's probably moved on sufficiently, that I
should just be carrying around a laptop.
I'd much prefer this to be an Ubuntu Laptop, obviously.
What I need advice on are:
- Advice on what audio editing software I need (I'm coming from an Adobe
Audition / CoolEdit) background, and the key features I need are
FFT-based noise reduction, track volume normalisation, and in-line editing.)
- What hardware should I get. I need to be able to provide phantom power
for two condenser microphones, and input from them at "better than CD
quality" - ideally 88.2 / 24 bit stereo, so I can sort out noise
rounding errors in the extra resolution before downsampling to CD....
there are a few of these things around, but no-one talks about their
Ubuntu support :-(
- I don't particuarly need a high-end SP/DIF card - I've got a
de-jittering processor, so I can cope with a relatively nasty digital
output signal and turn it into something without too many problems
before it hits a DAC :-)
