as paul said, once the track templates are in shape (and they seem very
close), such a thing will be quite easy to set up in ardour. the only
thing that's missing is a way to display all plugins for one channel in
a single window, and maybe a second option to display one particular
parameter for all channels (the pm5d has such a mode for its encoder
bank, and it's really, really, really nice).

optionally, keyboard shortcuts to pop up and cycle through plugins both
horizontally (next track/bus, previous track/bus) and vertically
(next/prev plugin in current track/bus)...

while you're designing it, could this stuff be separated so that it's
easy to split it into an lv2 "Ambi channel strip" plugin and a lv2
reverb section later? this way, it could be used in ardour without
having to duplicate code...
