Just use testing/wheezy, there's no need to face with the unstable release
bugs or with the "vintage" stability when you have the mid choice. IMHO

Debian stable is just about the most outdated working Linux system you
can have =). This is great for stability (as the name implies), but
don't expect to see some new software for maybe up to a year or 2.

A /stable/ system in a studio or on stage is a good thing! YMMV.

But outdated packages is not true [any more]. e.g. debian/stable offers
ardour-2.8.11 (the current release), IOhannes is personally pushing Pd
to debian/git and you already find the latest LV2/lilv/SUIL/.. in sid.
need to list more?

The recent stable release was only a couple of months ago, with the freeze six months before that. It will be another 2 years till the next update.

Stable is very stable, which is exactly how it should be, and if what you want is in stable - great. But for example the Pd stuff you mention won't move in to stable until 2013, till then its in sid, and maybe backports to squeeze.
Just use testing/wheezy, there's no need to face with the unstable release bugs or with the "vintage" stability when you have the mid choice. IMHOregards
