Previewing single cycle waveforms should default to forward loop

Improving how single cycle waveforms are previewed while browsing through a collection of samples. Since Tracker has a memory limit, the use of single cycle waveforms allows loading many samples as instruments.

What is the problem?

When browsing single cycle waveforms, clickling “preview” results in a short tick sound. In order to hear how a single cycle waveform sounds when played, each needs to be loaded, one by one, prior to switching to sample playback mode and then play them as loop.

What do you want to achieve?

A preview mode that Tracker switches to automatically for short samples (e.g., anything shorter than 0.03 seconds) thus allowing preview of single cycle waveforms without needing to load the sample fully.

Are there any workarounds?

Not aware of workarounds

Any links to related discussions?

This issue was raised in the Tracker Beta Testing Github a couple years ago (#1289)

Any references to other products?
