   If the Ardour guys told you it couldn't be done in Ardour, then I'd
assume they were right about that.

   How about this hack...Take your track in Ardour, and through Jack
send it out to something like JAMin, Steve Harris's multi-band
compressor, and then back into Ardour from Jack and rerecord it. I
*think* JAMin has a make-up gain control, You should be able to push
that up, do some adjustments to the compressor to make sure you're not
lighting up too much, and get a nice loud (i.e. - normalized) signal.

   Just a hack, but it should work.
