Default Cycling through samples in arrange view.

Hi!

I want to drag a loop (from a pack) onto a track, and be able to cycle through other loops in the same folder in-place. Is this possible?

With samplers this is common practice - draw in your 4-on-the-floor kick MIDI, hit play, and cycle through all the kick samples until you find the one you like so you can hear it in-context. I'm just looking to do the same with loops in the arrange view.

Do you specifically need to drag them onto a track? Just preview them in the media explorer, you can cycle through them there.
(if it's because you need to hear them with particular routing or FX you can still do that from media explorer, if you change the I/O to "selected track")
