The slicing-algorithm of the electribe esx contains a nifty automatic crossfade-loop-feature which can be really handy. Here's a demonstration of a technique which can create interesting effects without using extra samplememory. Hope you like it. (WARNING: european english is used :)
HINT #1: optionally you can resample the seamless loop, and put it on a drumpart. Whenever you experience a 'click'-sound re-apply the envelope 'fadein' trick as shown at 03:38
HINT #2: The sample above was extracted from a soundfont, so it was already loopable (hence the 'all'-slice was looping). So, this means you can prepare a looping sample on your laptop: in your waveeditor apply a fadeout on the end of your sample. Then apply a fadein on the beginning of your sample. Cut that first-part, and mix (not paste) it with the end of your sample. Voila its a seamless looping sample. Hope it makes sense :) If not let me know and I'll demonstrate it in a video.
