Another Gentoo user here. This was my first ever Linux distro and
although I was completely clueless I managed to get it up and
running. There is good support from docs...


...and forums...


Gentoo has a great package management system (portage) which makes it
very easy to select apps and even specific versions to install. That's
the number one requirement for audio, I think. You can try out a
bleeding edge version from the repo HEAD but easily drop back to
something more stable if it's not working out.

In general, Ubuntu is great for a first Linux distro but I'm not sure
about audio specifically. Weren't they having problems with real-time
kernels recently? I could be wrong.

What's your hardware?
