Summary0000108: Better Sustain Loop preview updating

When creating a Sustain Loop, changes we make to the loop points are not updated on the fly. But they are for Sample Loops. That is, you can set a normal Sample loop, begin the preview, and while the signal is looping thru the Sample Start and End points, you can change them and the playback is updated. (This makes it easy to create a clean, click-free loop.) But this same behavior does not exist for Sustain loops. So, if we want to make a clean Sustain loop (usually for vocal lines), we often have to create the loop in the Sample fields first, check it and clean it, then turn that off and re-enter the same values in the Sustain Loop fields.

To save time, we would like to see a little toggle button which simply switches the values between the two loop types. Or better yet, emulate the Sample Loop preview behavior in the Sustain Loop...

Sustain loop preview should now also be updated instantly:

Doesn't always work, and when you switch loop modes (On to Bidi, for example) that isn't immediately updated, like it is for the standard loop.
I found that when you type in the new loop point into the text fields, the playback will dynamically adjust, but when you use the arrow keys to help you find the right crossing points, the playback does not update (which is actually when i need it the most).

All loops should now be updated correctly in all possible scenarios, I think...

Works perfectly, like the standard Sample Loop functions.
