Re: Slackware for Music Studio, Music Recording/Production
Slackware does not come with a boatload of music apps installed, however, it is possible to grab them from third-party repos or compile them from source. Compiling from source on Slackware is typically easier than on other distributions since SW uses plain vanilla versions for all of packages (i.e., no distro-specific patches needed). Resource intensive multimedia apps also benefit more than most other apps when compiled targeted towards the actual hardware you have.
As an alternative to Slackware, you might investigate VectorLinux in combination with its Multimedia Bonus Disk. Vector is Slackware-based and the Bonus Disk contains most of the software that would need.
