You should be able to export the session to a stereo WAV... however,
not sure about the soft-synths, since the mixdown isn't in realtime.
Usually I record the softsynths down individual audio tracks first (so
I can perform any automation and such), and then mix everything down
via the session export. Regardless, you do need to make sure any
sequencers you are using are synced with ardour.
