As I said: it comes near the thing, that is known as "destructive
editing" yet it is not the very same.

True: you cannot zoom to the single-sample level in Ardour and thus you
cannot edit single samples. So, if you need to diminish a single sample,
because it is broken, you would need to paint a curve, that manipulates
ca 20 samples.

Audacity allows such tricks, the question is: what do you need? Having
an editor, that is completely non-destructive has its charme sometimes,
especially if you want to use processor-plugins like compressors or
eqalization. Bit for such things Audacity is a no-go anyways, for it
cannot play the sound as you set the parameters, you want to apply.

So for special editing-tasks Audacity is only "rivaled" by SND, yet for
the majority of things you will want to do with recordings, Ardour has
much more to offer.
Both are great, free programs and it Audacity would only fit smoothly
into jack, it would be highly recommendable....
