I was trying to get the Gentoo version from the Audacity website, but as far as I can tell, Audacity is not ready for Gentoo Linux yet.
Anyone know if the Ubuntu version will work on Alpine? Or one of the others?

Alpine is based on musl libc, there will be issues when trying to run most graphical binary programs that are were compiled and linked with glibc toolchain.
Meanwhile Alpine at least had a recipe for building Audacity from source. Why you do not follow it? http://git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/aports/tree/main/audacity/APKBUILD?id=567085595974ab0c33551dc4e138f747829b968f
Audacity is in Alpine community repository. You can install it with:
apk add audacity
If there are specific feature you want to be enabled, feel free to create a feature request in the Alpine Bugtracker
Remember to enable the community repository by editing
/etc/apk/repositories and then use:
apk update apk add audacity
At a minimum you need to get ALSA enabled, otherwise all inputs and outputs in audacity will show as blank. Follow these instructions:
