Well, ardour is non-destructive in the sense that it tries to do as much as 
possible live without modifying what is on disk (even if that modification is 
really a new file).
And "applying" an effect to a track or a region in the track always needs at 
least one run where you listen to the effects effect. So you always need to plug 
the effect in the channel, obviously or hidden in some "effect rehearsal" 
And with ardours mixer you can rehearse all effects in all channels 
permanently. When you are fine with one channels settings, freeze the track. 
When you are fine with all channels and the mix, export the song.

Have fun,
