There are a couple of good LADSPA compressors to do just that indoors. 
But nothing really prevents you from having multiple instances of jamin 
alternatively and work specific tracks with it. No rules here.

No. With "Scenes" you set up a *sequence* of settings if you wanted to 
master a sequence of pieces with different tone control requirements.
