since i was EXTREMELY surprised that this:

> set the showController of the templatePlayer to true
> play videoclip "My Clip"

really did work, i cannot answer the audio player question.
I am afraid that this is simply not supported with sounds.

To help your memory a bit, here is what i wrote:

I want to have real tables ;-)

Since you do not work with player objects you should change the line to:

on scrollbardrag t_value
    set the playloudness to t_value
end scrollbardrag

See above, be prepared that it won't work at all :-/

The latter on, only referenced files, but that is no problem,  
actually :-)

With the "play" command you can only play a very small "subset" of
all possible sound files: Uncompressed AIF files and AU files.
WAV files are reported to make some problems.

AND you can only play one sound at a time!
