There is a Fedora Jam installer that brings in a large collection of
audio tools at once: https://labs.fedoraproject.org/en/jam/

1. Last time I looked it was using the KDE desktop. If that's not to
your liking you'll need to install a different desktop.
2. It is large. It has just about every audio package available.
