Planet CCRMA and DeMuDi are not restricted to just audio stuff. Planet
CCRMA is based on Fedora Core, which is, I guess, a general purpose
distro. DeMuDI is based in Debian - can't think of anything more general
purpose than Debian. Both core distros include tons of packages that are
not audio related.
