I have Audiophile 2496 too, but I have never experienced such a problem.

1) create a new project
2) add a track
3) select in 1+2
4) click track's Record button (rec enable)
5) record a track
6) click track's Record button again

I don't need to add anything manually as when I add a new track it is
automatically connected to master out.

Open mixer and click Input button for your track - probably something is
wrong there. There should be only alsa pcm capture 1 and alsa pcm capture 2.

Howdy.  I'm not a total newbie when it comes to using mixers, at least I've
owned a few over the years and have been using hardware any way for a long
time now.  That said, Ardour is making me feel dumb (well, dumber than

I seem to be ending up with trouble when I attempt to play back while

I'm using an M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 so I have 2 analog ins and 2 analog
outs plus the digital mixer on the card. 

First, I add some new tracks.  I then select a track, click the input box
and choose "in 1+2" and record a track.

Next, I deselect the input on the track, choose the output box and then
assign it to the master out.  I then choose the second track and select the
input to be in "in 1+2 and " and record a new take.  

When I do the above I end up with some of track one bleeding through into
track 2 (same with all tracks after that).

So obviously something is connecting the master out back to audio ins but I
am not clear how to sort that issue out with Ardour (envy24control / Alsa
adding a wack of nonexistant pseudo outs for the card doesn't help either).

Any suggestions here appreciated.
