Not that my input matters much but I agree with Paul on this one. One
of the more frustrating features of Acid Pro is that when playing a
song if I select a loop for audition it automatically starts playing
the loop with the song. It's nice in a sense since this is what Acid
is about but to stop it I have to go find a different transport and
hit stop. (Not the song's transport.) At a minimum auditioning should
require a double-click on the first file being auditioned and an easy
way to halt auditioning when the user needs to.
