simple Chris; use markers. You can add them 'on-the-fly' and they will  
'divide' the timeline up enough for you in post. if yopu select the 'name  
as you add' ( or whatever0 feature when you press KP_enter it will ask you  
to name it first;neat ! if you have multiple feeds then multiple tracks is  
the way to go, otherwise simply mix in realtime to a stereo track. don't  
split tracks to songs; it just confuses the sequence of the session.  
remember Ardour has a 'notepad' type feature at the bottom of the mixer  
strip, so you could simply add any notes you want in there as the session  
progresses. just remeber which track you've used ;)

i don't use mac here; sorry.
