Ardour has supported MIDI control surfaces for a long time. Channel
gain, panners and plugin parameters can all be assigned to midi CC's
(control-changes). Also, Ardour supports MMC / MTC, so it's a question
of whether the US-2400 supports them as well.

If you are using Linux, you might run into issues if the device is a
non-standard USB device. Which it very well could be. I've heard no
reports of people using the US-2400 and there is no mention of it on the
alsa support page for Tascam devices

You might find useful information on this page

The most important thing you need to know is ctrl-middleclick'ing. If
you do that on a fader, panner or a plugin parameter, ardour will pop up
a dialog requesting you to move a fader to associate that control with
the parameter. The moment ardour receives a CC, the type of CC will be
associated to the parameter.

I've only drooled over pictures of the US-2400.
