Thanks for this idea Paul, it doesn't came to me ! (and solve the lil' 
problem was the goal, so no more problem, for the moment..)

On the other hand, since we have unlimited tracks in Ardour, it could be 
more simple to have a track for each MIDI drums "piece", as in IRL. Your 
message makes think to that, and I will reconsider the way to work with 
MIDI drums from Linuxsampler in Ardour, maybe in an un-traditional way 
(but who cares if it works?!!).

Maybe it's _faster_ to have several MIDI tracks for BD, SN, etc, and 
mute all but one, then record the audio, then record the second, etc...

Faster than assign a MIDI channel by intruments and having several 
engines in Linuxsampler ? If somebody have an idea on the list, please 
let know what you think

Thanks again & nice week end, doctor Paul :-))
