OK.  This is a bit 'esoteric' so to speak since I always use with the
mouse the rewind and forward (my names - I call them like that) ardour
buttons at the top left, in the same row as play, record, etc...  So
since I assign the other buttons in the same row to the Axiom keyboard
buttons I figured these two would also be assigned in the very same way.

I'll see what the Axiom user manual has to say about MMC.
