Bug Description

Mixxx should allow the user to save the currently set loop as a cue point for later one-click recall. Much like Traktor and Serato both do.

If I understood it right, there is really very little overlap with both features. The loop recorder records audio that later maybe can be saved as a new file to the library. The only thing that may relate this with cue-loops is to set a default track-lengh loop to this saved files.

It would be simple to program a controller script to start a loop at a hotcue point, but for that feature to be the most useful Mixxx would have to store the length of the loop in the database. I may want a loop starting at one point to be an 8 beat loop but a loop starting at another point to be a 32 beat loop. It would be annoying to have to manually adjust the loop length every time one of those cue points is used as a loop start point.

Will allow to implement this feature as a script.

@Ferran: what is the current state here?

Cue points can now also have a length.

I wonder how this feature can be controlled?
Just Set a cue and loop in at the same place?

I have a buggy naive implementation.

The way it works is that if you set a hotcue while a loop is active, then you set a loop hotcue.
