#1 reason for why I own a Guitar Rig. I get my guitar & bass sounds
without any noise. Sounds are good enough for my needs. Can work
anywhere I happen to be. Yeah, it's Windows, but so what? It's a tool
on one or four computers, not a life style, and it allows me to use
Ardour for what I think it does best.

Consider something like:

1) The band tracks a good performance in the practice space. The issue
is performance more than recording quality. Capture what you want you
are looking for in terms of timing, etc. Record the whole practice
session using Ardour in case something great happens.

2) Back at your houses overdub individual tracks for guitar, bass,
synths, keys, vocals, extras outside the practice space using Guitar
Rig, electronic drum pads, Alsa synths ala MIDI & Linus, etc.

3) Rough mix the overdubs with an ear toward eventually removing the
live session completely.

4) Back in the practice space, or in a studio for pay, record final drums.

5) Final mix removing original session completely.

I've done stuff like this for years. It works and in terms of being
forced to be quiet most of the time works great for me in terms of
producing good demo quality/semi-pro results. Works better as you are
able to record more tracks at practice. Currently you are limited to
two, I think, but over time you can upgrade equipment to 4 or 8 tracks
at step #1 and then you can weed out stuff as you need to.

Just ideas. Have fun.
