This is one of my gripes with ardour, too. At the top of the window, in
the transport bar, there is a button labeled "auto input". The status of
rec-enable, global rec-enable, transport rolling or stopped, and that
"auto input" button determine if a track is being monitored. For me,
"auto input" off seems to do what I want more often. Really either way
never does what I want all the time, so I wish monitoring was more
