just let me add, that i find this not trivial (nor stupid) at all. since
one works with quite low level primitives in pd, there are lots of ways
to implement a certain task, where each of it has its pros and cons.
peeking at the 'better tabread4~' thread, there are many strategies to
only pitch a sample from table down- and upwards. when looping it also
comes to choosing an adequate strategy to avoid click/jumps at loop
end/start. there are so many different kinds of samplers, that could be
implemented in pd: this topic is actually quite complex.
