I'd like to use my GT-6B CTL switch (and perhaps expression pedal and switch) to control some functions in Ardour. is this possible??

You can control functions in Ardour with any MIDI device that alsa can see (displayed in the MIDI tab of Qjackctl). The relevant manual page is here:

http://www.ardour.org/files/manual/sn-midi-configuration.html

The secret thing that that page doesn't mention is that you use CTRL + Button 2 on an interface widget (slider, etc) to put it in MIDI learn mode. This fact is at the very end of this page:

http://www.ardour.org/files/manual/sn-mouse-and-keyboard-bindings.html

Perhaps that information should be added to the page on MIDI?
