[linux-audio-user] Ardour and Editing

I think I'm really missing something here. Maybe someone can shed some
light on this for me.

The Ardour web site says "Ardour is not a sound file editor."

Isn't editing sound files a big part of the process of getting music
from the instrument to the CD? Before using Ardour, I spent lots of
time with Audacity which, though very limited in many of the features
that make Ardour so powerful, is a very powerful and intuitive sound
file editor for many of the basic editing jobs you end up doing after
the musicians have gone home and you are stuck with what you recorded.
For instance, you need to amplify a small section of a track (more than
the 12 dB you can get with Ardour's envelope and mixer gains). Or you
want to apply an effect or plug-in to just a portion of a track.

First of all, (please correct me if I'm wrong) Ardour says it is trying
to be a Pro-Tools type application but I can't imagine that Pro-Tools
doesn't have built-in sound file editing.

So what do you folks use and what is your method when you need to do
editing (I assume, outside of Ardour)?
