Don't know of any specific appliance but have a look at this project on 
OpenSUSE called Jacklab.

JackLab supports openSUSE to have an extension (distribution) for audio/media 
and become a fast digital audio workstation with an audio-realtime-kernel and 
professional tools for music production up to VST instruments.
