Hi Kevin,
   Maybe other more advanced users will have a more Ardour specific
answer but I think I'd do this as a first pass using volume automation
(or mute automation if it works) on each track. It does sound like a
lot of work though, depending on how many mics you used to track the

   Once I had everything sounding the way I wanted it I would most
likely bounce this group of drum tracks to a single set of drum tracks
that I'd use later on for mixing.

   The problem raises some interesting software design ideas, such as
a way for automation data to control multiple tracks at the same time,

   Good luck however you manage to do it.
