An interesting approach.  I use an insert on the master track to send
the mix to Jamin, then put the master outs to a monitor bus which sends
its output to the hardware.  I like that because I can map the monitor
fader to my MIDI control unit and have a physical fader to adjust the
monitor level.  One thing I learned is to not use the Ardour monitor bus,
though, because it ends up automatically mapping a control channel to
the monitor bus which I need to manually remove or I'm not hearing the
actual mix.
