Free recording/editing programs more advanced than Audacity?

I'm trying to get some lo-tech music recorded/edited, and I was wondering if there are any programs out there that are both free and a little more advanced than Audacity. I have a Mac 10.5.8 and will be recording with my computer (no mics), and wouldn't you know it GarageBand 11 is only for Mac 10.6.
But anyway, I've looked at a couple so far, like Ardour, which requires some crazy plug-in I don't have. All the other ones I found require Terminal and/or coding (Chuck, Csounds), which I don't know anything about. I just need something straightforward yet useful. And ideally, something that grows with you (unlike Audacity). I'm trying to perhaps learn some recording skills as I go.
Bonus for extra features like 'spectral shapers' and oscillators or things that imitate analog keyboards...or something like this
