select/audition tool modifier

I like to switch between the select tool and the audition tool (the speaker) a lot when working in the project window. I’d like to do this with a modifier on the select tool. With tracks with multiple lanes, you have to open up the lanes view and control-click on the lane.

But on tracks with only one lane, it still seems that you have to open up the lanes view. Is there a way to do this without having to waste all the space opening up lanes view on every track? It works fine when you actually select the audition tool, but that’s cumbersome after a lot of repetitions and I would like to be able to access that tool via a modifier key on the select tool.

This post seems to address a similar situation and it seems like it does not work:

But I wanted to double-check.
