Actually I was assuming that you have good loop points indeed. From my
(short) tracker days I remember that tuning the loop points in a
sample was an important step to get it right. Fading in and out or
cross has the disadvantage that you may get artifacts from the amplitude

However some approaches for fading (even with a single [tabread4~]) are
shown in the docs in the various *sampler*.pd files.
