You can use the "timefx" tool in ardour to stretch sound without altering
One way to do this would be to record a rough mix of the session in one
track (connect track inputs to master out, don't use software monitoring).
Then mute other tracks, stretch/shrink the rough mix and play on top of the
modified mix track. Then remove/mute the rough mix track, unmute other
tracks and stretch/shrink the recorded signal to the correct length.
The algorithm for time stretching in ardour isn't very high quality. So
results may wary depending on the signal and your expectations. ;)
