Ardour 0.99 works fine for me, though it crashes on occasion.  It's
beta, no?   LADSPA plugins work fine also.  I put them in
~/Library/Audio/Plugins and they're detected with no problem at all.

As for a comparison to Linux, can't help you there.  I switched to
Macs six years ago and haven't looked back.
