Sound Not Playing In Timeline/Editor for Sound Effector? (Cinema 4d R15)

Hi there,

So I have a very simple set up, an object connected to a sound effector. When I press the play button located in the sound effector dialog box, the song plays perfectly. The file is .wav, 44.1khz and 16bit. It's 6 minutes long, which is kind of extensive but that shouldn't matter here. I'm sure that file is formatted correctly because again, the dialog box can play it. However, when I press play on the timeline/editor, no sound is audible.
In R15, they removed the little speaker button toggle by default from the bottom of the editor, so I went and added it back in from my preferences. When I did, I noticed that the speaker icon is greyed out.
In addition, I tried adding the null object, and going to timeline and adding a special track for music. Again, nothing can be heard but the dialog box plays just fine.

I'm very confused and would appreciate any and all help, I'm sure others may be experiencing similar issues.

Edit I found the answer! Menu -> Animate -> Make Sure Play Sound is Checked

I hate when simple things like that leave you confused as crap.

Thanks anyways.
