Actually you need only press Ctrl when you click on the Play button. You
can change the cross-hairs cursor to a tracking vertical line by adding
this code to your ~/.snd file:
(lambda (snd shape)
(do ((j 0 (1+ j)))
((= j (channels snd)) #f)
(set-cursor-style shape snd j))))
(lambda (snd) (if (cursor-follows-play snd) (set-sound-cursor snd
(lambda (snd) (set-sound-cursor snd cursor-cross)))
It's very nice. Study the examples.scm file for more fun...

I agree. I'd love to see someone's config that made all that CLM stuff
available from a drop-down menu. Anyone ???
