thanks eric

i just figured out tabplay but i'm glad i made that post anyway because the 
example patch you gave is much tidier than what i had :)

it loops seamlessly. although i'm using it to layer samples of rain (so it 
gets heavier/lighter) so if there was a small delay it might be hard to 

either way i'm happy

thanks again :)
