Check Rosegarden.

For the rest check theses but add to that Bitwig that has a Linux version,
ZorinOS will be limited since we could say it's forked twice from
Debian, it mean a long time for updates and maybe issues, the closer
to a main distros you are, sometimes doing things yourself may be far
better, spoon feeding just make users that flee at the first issue
that could not really be one sometimes, users should learn how to
install their drivers and so on to be able to select any distro they
want ...
