I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for, but I think you are
asking for destructive recording.

Ardour is a non-destructive, non-linear editor. It does support destructive
recording, but this functionality is (a) highly specialized (b) highly not
recommended (c) broken in 3.x for some time.

When you record in Ardour, you ALWAYS create a new file on disk (except
when using destructive tracks). What you can do later is to combine regions
into one "logical" region, an operation that is extremely fast since it
does not write any new (audio) data to disk. This option is only available
for audio tracks.
