LinuxDSP has pro-level plugins.  They're not FOSS (although they were
originally distributed that way, just not financially feasible I guess).
 I'm currently using a multi-band compressor, and a 10-band parametric by
linuxdsp, and they're worth every penny.  I also recently bought mixbus,
which has per-channel EQ and compression, which work like a charm.  So,
Linux *does* have great pro-level audio tools in addition to ardour, it's
just that they're not free.  (I used ardour for 3 years for my studio, and
loved it.)  Can't wait for version 3 to come out!
