I'm getting there, by (for the very first time) using punch-in,
punch-out zone.  While right click on those thin 'tracks' above the
audio track I happened to also create an unamed zone by coincidence.
Right clicking on one of those unamed markers offers the possibility to
play that range in loop (although the looping mysteriously ends after
a certain number of times). with seq24 playing along.  Oddly, Ardour is
not jack sync master, and seq24 is, although play control is done in
Ardour.  This is rather easy and still have lots to experiment with.
It is certainly fun to have software for so long that still have nice
pratical features to discover.  The only other I know of is emacs :-)

Now, is it possible to precisely define the start and stop of a
(punch-in/out) zone ?  It is possible to do so for the end marker by
showing the measures in the secondary clock window and using the
mouse's roll, but it doesn't seem to work with zone markers.
