Like I said. It's a hack. Ardour is not Samplitude. It's not Pro Tools.
It's not Logic or Cubase SX. It's Ardour. ;-)

I understand how normalize works in Samplitude, and TTBOMK it's not
here, which is why I made this feeble suggestion. Take it for what it's
worth. If that's not to your liking, then maybe Rezound or Audacity
would get it done for you more easily.

Get used to wanting things in Ardour. Make you requests. The developers
are really pretty good about working on stuff that makes sense to them
and that multiple people want. A year ago I was pushing for stereo
tracks. Ardour coughed that up, and much more. It's a good program when
you use it for what it was designed to do.
