if you use a monitor bus AND you use AFL or PFL then *by definition*
"soloing" (AFL or PFL) does NOT affect what is on the master bus. that's
the whole point of using a monitor bus and AFL/PFL - soloing occurs on the
monitor bus ONLY and the master (which may be feeding another recorder, or
the main PA, or whatever) is left unaffected.

i don't think there is any way to do what you want, not in ardour, or on
any console that provides AFL/PFL. this suggests that you should probably
rethink what you want :) what are you trying to do that requires this?
