Reverting to Regular Ubuntu

Hello all,

I currently have Ubuntu Studio 7.04 installed - however, I want to
revert to regular Ubuntu - is this simply a matter of removing unwanted
applications and changing themes, or is there more to it? I know Ubuntu
Studio uses a low-latency kernel which is different from Ubuntu.

The other option I am considering is to just install Ubuntu from
scratch, except I have a rather large collection of music that I've
recently ripped to OGG - and I do not want to lose that - nor do I want
to have use 15 DVD's to burn them all to - is there a way to install
over Ubuntu Studio without damaging other data? 

I have tried the following: 

sudo aptitude remove ubuntustudio-desktop ubuntustudio-audio
ubuntustudio-audio-plugins ubuntustudio-graphics ubuntustudio-video &&
sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop

But it didn't seem to do anything except remove the sound package
associated with UbuntuStudio.

Obviously, I am a newbie with both Linux and Ubuntu, so I may be missing
something extremely easy to do - Please point this out to me, if it is
the case. 

Thank you for any and all help you can provide.
