Assumed kx-studio should provide a demo version, why don't you simply
use a distro, that does provide the real version? Resp. I suspect
kx-studio does provide a full version.

A while ago Paul explained that "you can pay as little as US$1 for a
fully functional version of the program" is a kind of marketing
strategy ;), you still get Ardour for free as in beer. It would be fair,
if you donate a little bit, but there's no way to handle donations by
the package management.

I stay with Ardour 2, but I suspect Arch Linux does provide the full
version of Ardour 3.
