Play/Stop button with midi

Hello Sergio,
i would like to use cyclone with a trigger.
I'm a drummer and i need to play some samples (sometime loops, or just few notes of a virtual instrument). I can do it with no problems (thank you again for the compilation). I can affect a midi note to play the sample. But i just can do it with "FineLoop".
Can you tell me what are the differences between all these modes?
In others modes, there's no way to play the sample with the trigger. My trigger is a Alesis trigger io.
I also can affect another midi note to the "general stop".

Thank you

End Modes are not related at all to MIDI assignments: if you right-click on a loop's play button, you can assign a MIDI command from your triggers no matter what end loop is selected.
To understand differences among different end modes, try with a single loop to play each mode:
Instantaneous: when you trigger the next loop, the current will be stopped immediately.
EndLoop: when you trigger the next loop, the current will finish and the triggered one is enqueued.
Once: the loop will be played one time.
Asynchronous: the loop will be played once, mixed to everything else is playing at the moment.

I also can affect another midi note to the "general stop".

Simply right-click on the main stop button (bottom) to assign your preferred trigger to the stop function.
