Thanks for the replies.

Unfortunately I tried to install Ubuntu Studio for the music related apps but it would not install after four attempts. The install process wiped out the original Ubuntu installation and it took four more attempts to get it installed again. I'll stick with adding the apps manually though it is quite a different way of doing things.

That is what I need, another new geek tech to take away from making music :-) .
