It should be fixed in git, now (4.7-1070-g0366057)

Ardour by itself should use very little CPU actually.
There's no DSP (apart from some gain/mix, panning and metering).

I don't think there's per-channel region-gain.

I'd add a simple amp plugin to the track, connect first two channels
only, then bounce-with-processing.

Anyway, what is the reason to not use 4 mono tracks and simply group them?
