Sony Acid / Sound Forge alternatives for Linux

After switching from Windows to Linux, I struggled leaving behind my Sony Acid and Sound Forge applications. I researched every Linux replacement and in the end I begrudgingly settled on Audacity (which handles both audio editing and mixing).

I say 'begrudgingly' because personally I think the theme looks terrible. Once I improved that slightly with an Oxygen-style theme, it still took me awhile to figure out how to load, envelope, and mix multiple tracks. Hint: YouTube is your friend (or ebook if you have the time).

P.S. If you're a serious mixing engineer, Ardour is a better fit but I found it overkill for my needs. Also, Jokosher showed promise but the envelope tools were too difficult to work with.
