Ubuntu Studio is Ubuntu with audio/video and graphics applications set
up to work correctly. Also uses a low latency kernel for audio
You could make an argument for 64studio or planet ccrma on Fedora, but
ubuntustudio works great !
Maybe someone out there has configured a more common(?) 'distro' to do
the job, but then it could become harder to explain to a visitor how to
achieve the same thing.
