There are several.

At the bottom level there is dpkg which installs individual packages and
then there are others tools on top that also automatically install
dependencies.  The ones I know of are:

apt-get - command line, popular with experts.
aptitude - curses interface
synaptic - GTK interface.

There is also ardour-i686 and ardour-altivec

apt-get install ardour

The above is obviously targeted at multimedia software and tends to
include more recent versions than the main repository or where code that
may be patent encumbered has been left in while in the main repository
it has been removed.
