Try Match Frame. CS6: the F key. CS5.5 and earlier: the M key.
thanks for the reply Jeff, but I'm not sure I follow. Match frame seems to match your playhead in the timeline to its video clip in the source (essentially a shortcut for if you'd clicked on a video clip in the timeline and loaded it into the source).
But I'm trying to do the equivalent of this but for audio. And right now I can only get match frame to work for video.
I've realized that the first time I load audio into the source monitor from the timeline, it does actually match my playhead position from the timeline. But then once loaded into the source monitor, it doesn't change to reflect a changed playhead position of timeline, even when double clicked in from the timeline (unlike how PrPro handles video, which is every time you click on it in the timeline, the clip is loaded into the source with the playhead moved to reflect where you've moved in the timeline).
Match frame works for any clip in the sequence.
Of course the Source playhead doesn't change when you move the sequence playhead. They're two different playheads. Both video and audio behave the same.
(By the way, a double click does perform essentially a Match Frame the first time you do it.)
