and then work the levels on my soundcard and preamps to get things

	I'm using software mixing/monitoring, JACK 0.91.1 with
capabilities, and Ardour 0.9beta9.1.  No LADSPA plugins while recording,
but all outputs are going to a stereo bus for playback.  I'm only at
five tracks, counting the overdub I did last night.
