I use debian stable/testing and have had very few problems. Debian uses 
alsa as default which should help. 64 studio might have something in the 
future which they are working on but I don't know when! 64 Studio v2.1 
uses debian etch and ubuntu so is quite old. AV linux is debian based 
too and has extras. I am putting together my own live cd distro for 
purely audio apps. I have an early alpha version working if you'd like 
to try it?

Happy hunting
