Hi Ralph!
  IMHO there isn't a good sound recording and processing app for KDE yet. There
is krec but it's not suitable for Your needs.
  Try for example Audacity. It contains many good effects which can improve
the quality substantially; however, it requires some experiences (or a lot of
playing to gain it before). There are other apps like Ardour or Rezound, which
may be even more powerful but they require even more practice to get a good
result (it may be my subjective feeling, don't flame me please).
  If You want more help, write me personally because it's OT for KDE lists.
                                  With regards, Pavel Troller
