I haven't messed around with Arch for audio stuff (using Ubuntu Studio
for that right now), but I use it on my main desktop at work, and several
servers in a lab I run, but I've been very happy with it.
I also run Gentoo on a few machines, but I'm finding that the older I get,
the more I want things to 'just work' ;). I do sincerely like Gentoo as
a distro - I've been a Gentoo user since 2004 and run it on several
machines. However, the farther you get from the mainline code base and
into ~arch territory, the more likely you are to run into dependency
conflicts, library version mismatches and other time-sinks. There was
for a long time, and might still be an issue with getting nvidia video
drivers to build on machines that are running RT kernels.
