Unity Launcher for Ardour3

anybody know how to build a launcher for Unity (Ubuntu 12.04).
I tried pinning the application while it was running to the toolbar but that fails to register that Ardour is actually running and tries to create a new instance rather than switching to the app.

I’m running Unity (Ubuntu 12.04) and Adour 3.something. I have Ardour on the toolbar. I think I just dragged the icon onto the toolbar from either the desktop or the ‘Dash’ - don’t remember. Not with the programming running.
