Summary0001518: Add 'a' keypress to enable/disable audio during playback in player and DCP-o-matic preview

As it is possible to disable audio playback in prefs while playback is running, I guess it would be easy to add a keyboard shortcut to do it, like the 'a' key. Earlier, I would have preferred an audio checkbox close to the playback window, but I guess, a keypress is better. One could add a hint towards it to the prefs audio setting.

Now, what if we had L,R,C,S or... 1,2,3,4,5,6 for activation/deactivation of individual channels...
I know, my keyboard does not have a '12' key...


I mean, it' s MAC !!!11!!! (oh, it DOES have an '11' key it seems...

Is the motivation here to disable all the audio "stuff" from happening, or just to mute it? The former isn't very easy without a little break in the playback.

I could imagine having a simple mute/solo arrangement so that 'a' mutes all channels and 1/2/3/4/5/6 mutes individual channels (and maybe Shift+1 to solo L, etc).

My worry is that this this is another source of confusion and complexity: where's my audio? where's my dialogue? So we'd need some fairly clear indication in the UI that some channels are muted/soloed. I guess we could find space for that.

Any thoughts?
