Right now there is no easy way, you have to assign each one manually
in ardour for each track, for each session.  The best thing you can do
is to do this once for a general session and save it as a template for
future use.

We have big plans for supporting the notion of a control surface
generically (and specifically in the forms of Mackie Controls, etc)
which would make everything much easier for the user.

At the moment there is no way to do this, but the future control
surface features will provide a way to make bindings for the
"selected" channel.
