That is encouraging.

However I'm having trouble getting started. Apparently the sound file 
cannot  be an imported sound file but  a referenced file on disk.

So, I find I can start the play  with:

   Play "/Users/jameshurley/Desktop/myAudio.wav"

Now, where does the player come in? How do I get the player to 
control the play? How does the player pause, change volume or speed 
of this sound file?
