ok, this makes sense!

Oh, thats simpler than I thought...
Its a shame, I never had a sampler to work with... do they all have 
such huge release times?

So it seems I can leve the short note as it is. My primary intension 
was to throw a little dot on the sequencers screen to make the cycle 
and loop start points visible...
