of course there is

kind of:

1.) set compressor, limiter etc. as desired

2.) use the range-tool to select the part of the track you want to 

3.) right klick the range and select "Consolidate range with processing"

Ardour will render a new region with all your processing as fast as your 
CPU can deliver ;-)
