I just use a template for my connections. That way I "speed things up" later 
on in the session @ mix time. 

I love the extreme flexability Ardour offers with almost all of it's features. 
Yes the editing could be a little faster in some respects, but you know I 
went  to a collegues studio with Samplitude today  (btw i was on the beta 
team for Sampitude 4 and had used it since 1996 v 2.5 till 2004 v 7.22) and 
quite seriously I hated the whole thing. Since moving to Linux totally last 
November, i have not looked back. I am amazed at how limiting, 
inflexable,unstable and un-productive ( let alone the appaling time-slap !) 
Windoze based music-making really is. 

I have made a real effort to re-learn and re-align my skills to 
Ardour/Muse/Linux and I can honestly say I much prefer the system as is. I 
miss not having the playhead move with the mouse; but the keystoke (p) is 
actually perfectly adequate .  I miss not being able to move the timeline at 
the bottom of the screen, but I'm quite used to it. And I have some editing 
options I NEVER had in Samplitude at all ! And many things are configurable 
in ardour.rc etc anyway.

I hear what you're saying and I agree with most of it, but for me if Ardour 
stays the way it is I'm very happy, and very productive.

that'll be 2c,
