The best 'free' software of this type for Unix that I've seen is 'DAP'.
It's *infinitely* better than xwave for recording and editing audio
streams, and it looks _way_ cool, to boot. ;-)

I use the Linux binary supplied on the author's website (to digitise my
old LPs too) using the pkgsrc/emulators/suse_base package to provide the
necessary libraries.

If I have one gripe, it's that DAP is a bit of a memory hog.
