Simply try to reproduce this situation independently.

I'm make guitar music.
Record one mono track and make pseudo stereo with some buses and ladspa plugins. Then join channels of one instrument at one stereo bus -- for common volume control (and other automation) that instrument. Hook ladspa plugins on that bus if I need. Then join similar buses in to the master bus. And mix it. I don't touch master fader at all -- simply check that the maximum level in muster bus did not exceed 0db. Then export mix into wav file, import it into another session of ardour, connect it to jamin... Let's add a few magics with compressors and equalizer... and retrieve result -- http://muzik.agnula.org/view.php?view=track&id=1561

ardour, hydrogen and jamin -- three whales on which music in linux keeps :)
Thanks developers!
