Im advanced musician and neophyte Ubuntu/Ardour user.
I dont need my songs perfect but I feel like I could probably beef them up ALOT pretty fast if I knew what the f Im doing on this laptop
Especially my vocals sound like ass. Great melodies, good voice, good feel, but compared to everyone else my shit sounds flat so please pardon my potty mouth and thank you!

to clarify: what really simple plugins can I put on my vocals (or other tracks ) to polish them up

Basic good plugins are included in the Ardour instalation. Right click on plugin section in mixer stripe -> New Plugin -> By Creator -> Ardour Team. There you can find a-EQ, a-Compressor, a-Reverb, and a-Delay, that should be enough to make a fine mix.
