I actually intended to express, that I didn't know the answer. Lazy

This really is better with the Gtk version, which has the modern look
you are (at least I am) probably used to.

Could be. Actually I am using the upstream snd_conffile.scm and
overwrote what I didn't like in ~/.snd like the looping. That way I
can profit from changes/bug fixes immediatly.

You could also start using CVS to check out snd from Sourceforge. This
will save a lot of bandwidth, because as you (will) see, things can
get fixed or updated really fast with Bill. ;)

Here's my snd:

$ snd --help

and my ~/.snd: 

;; /home/freak/snd was filled by copying all *.scm files to home:
(set! %load-path (cons "/home/freak/snd" %load-path))
(set! %load-path (cons "/home/freak/snd/dlp" %load-path))
;;(set! %load-path (cons "/dos/ibm/hdc10/f/src/audio/snd-7/dlp" %load-path))

(set! snd-remember-paths #t)
;;(load-from-path "misc.scm")
(load-from-path "snd_conffile.scm")

;; Bind Pos1/Home and End to something more common
;; /usr/X11R6/include/X11/keysymdef.h
;;  XK_Home			0xFF50
;;  XK_End			0xFF57	/* EOL */
(bind-key #xFF50 0 	(lambda () (set! (cursor) 0)))
(bind-key #xFF57 0 	(lambda () (set! (cursor) (1- (frames)))))

;; bind "update-sound from disk" to Ctl-Home instead:
(bind-key #xFF50 4 	update-sound)

;; Unset looping again here:
(define islooping #f)
;; EOF
