I believe that your solution for the loop is the "classic" solution
that most samplers implement.

I didn't understand your comments about the soft synth though - are
you saying that you think it's easier making a sampler in PD, than
using a pre-made sampler? That seems a surprising conclusion, based on
my own dabbling trying to create a sampler in Pd versus using software
samplers (though the one I like best NI Intakt, which is more for
one-shots, beat-slicing, and loops, and not for multi-samples).
