[PD] is there a way to send a bang precisely when a sample is looped using tabread4~?

I posted this at pd-everywhere - then realized (was reminded!) that that's
really a libpd list...
Here’s my setup: I’m using a phasor~ to read data out of an array using
tabread4~. And I’m using snapshot and metro to let me know current position
in that file. Basically, metro pings the snapshot object on an interval and
gives me a reading of where we are. I’m trying to fire a bang exactly when
the sample is looped.
I’d love it if an event would fire when we’ve reached the end of the array.
But as far as I can tell, there’s no such event.
And, because metro runs on an interval, I don’t have sample accuracy.
Snapshot will not reliably give me the zero position – it’ll just give me
something close to zero, as it’s dependent on the metro interval, which has
no relation to when the sample actually loops. (Hope that makes sense!)
I’ve been able to make this work decently using expr, but again, it’s not
So, is there a way to send a bang precisely when a sample is looped using
