track's volume like any other track while still having the freedom to
change the drum part without having to export to WAV.  Hydrogen will
start playing when you hit play on ardour.  But it doesn't really
matter how you decide to get a drum track into Ardour.  Either by WAV
or by jack slave, you can always use a ladspa amplifier in ardour to
raise the volume of a track that has less than optimal levels. 
There's a ton of ladspa effects around that can help you out with bad
