Is there a way that I can hear the audio track that is on one layer of a composition while ram-previewing in another composition? I am working on a music video, and precomped a few elements within one comp, but left the music in the original comp. Now that I'm editing elements in the precomp, I want to hear the audio so I can sync up the music. Should I just drop an additional audio layer into this precomp and sync it up manually, and then make sure that the audio is disabled for the precomp in my main comp, or is there are more efficient way to do this that I'm overlooking? Do Guide Layers have anything to do with this, or am I totally off base?

If you make the audio in the precomps guide layers you can hear them while working, but don't have to worry about forgetting to turn them off. Guide layers don't show up in renders.
