I would like to suggest a tool to preview audio from the start of a bend marker to the next bend marker. So it's easier to determine the range set for a slice that will be used in a sample playing device.
So when bend markers are placed and the bend tool is selected, it is possible to hold a modifier key (e.g. CTRL+ALT) and the entire audio between the current bend marker is played from the start to the next bend marker. Like the listen tool, instead it won't play from the point of the listen tool, but the point of the first bend marker left of the mouse. Regardless where I click between two bend markers.
