I'm not sure this is good, for most uses. You can't assume that you
have good loop points, I like to set random loop points on the fly, in
fact - and so I think you really do need two buffers, because you are
fading out the start at the same time you are fading in the beginning
- otherwise you get clicks.  Or am I missing something in your

I'm almost positive that the two buffer solution is what typical
hard/soft samplers do, isn't that true?
