Audacity is great, but it can only do destructive editing: once a filter is applied the original sample is lost (unless the operation is undone). This limitation is not important for trivial projects, but it is felt more and more as the mix becomes more complex. Some years ago I did a project with Audacity, and at the end I was regretting that I had not used something like Ardour, which applies filters in real time.
There is a space for each kind of editor; be sure to pick the right one!
