Until now I do my hd recording with sequencers that include a hd 
recording, I don't know Ardour very much, but I can imagine that muting 
post fader might enable pre fader effects getting the signal, while the 
rest of the channel is muted, similar to a  situation on a mixing 
console were a channel isn't muted, but at the same time not connected 
to any sub bus or the main bus, than there would no direct play by this 
buses, but the aux channels would get the signal.
