Bug Description

As in the description of Ryan Baker for the sampler Feature he puts

DJ Awesome wants to sample directly from a playing song and use this to create on the fly remixes and loops. You should be able to sample directly from a playing song.

Something as simple as taking a loop selected the traditional way (the in/out section from a deck) and shoving it down to a selected sampler, sort of a "hold this chunk of track in sampler" scenario would be so awesome.

I wonder if there would be a way that you could just instruct the sampler to grab the whole file but only show the looped section? That way there wouldn't need to be any file creation/encoding of new file. Just some way to make the sampler focus exclusively on a section defined by the loops set in Deck...

What's up with this? It has been marked as "In Progress" for over a year.

It should be possible to adjust the length of the loop after it is already in the sample deck. That is, the whole track would be in the sample deck with a loop automatically on it, rather than cutting out the loop.

It would be really awesome if saving a loop could automatically set hot cues at quantized points in the loop, somewhat like Serato Itch's slice mode. The number of hot cues should be configurable to accommodate skins and controllers with different numbers of buttons. For example, a 2x4 grid of buttons, common on many controllers, could be mapped to 8 hotcues on a loop, or 4 hotcues on two different sample decks. So, saving a 4 beat loop with 4 hotcue points would chop it up into quarter notes, or saving it with 8 hotcue points would chop it into eigth notes. Combined with Mixxx's ability to set loops of different numbers of beats, and the ability to change the length of the loop as described above, this could be a very powerful and fun feature for live remixes and mashups.

Currently no active development is happening on this. It may pick up after
1.12 is released.

Isn't this achievable with the loop recorder? https://blueprints.launchpad.net/mixxx/+spec/loop-recorder
Otherwise if I understood it well, it will suffice to support instant doubles from deck to sample.
