you could add


in the first constructor of (lines 134 to 142)

as it gets called both after recording and after drawing.

NOTE: I am not an Ardour developer.... and only recently started reading/learning Ardour's code hopping to be able to contribute in the future.... the proposed solution is only a suggestion

There's a Session option (Session > Properties) to control the opacity of drawn regions (we consider it distinct from recorded regions). If recording is using layered mode (opaque regions) setting this option to true will cause both "types" of regions to have the same visual (and acoustic) opacity.
