I love to use Impact XT but sample searching is a chore and kills inspiration.  XLN XO and Atlas have the a great way to find and audition samples which is huge for workflow IMO and would be a gamechanger for the VST IMO.

1000 %. This is the single most needed feature for me when it comes to programming drums in electronic music or any kind of genre. When working on a track, realizing my Kick, Snare or HH is not perfect, I need to be able to audition alternative samples in real time like it is possible in Battery or XLN XO.

Battery, before ruining a formally perfect drum sampler, even did that non destructively, meaning while auditioning alternative samples, they didn't get loaded on the respective pad until I committed. The XLN XO, amongst other weaknesses, only has 8 Drum Sounds available per set, so having this feature in Impact XT would be a booster for a creative workflow and on top probably would be another very strong argument to change to Studio One for those who still can‘t decide. Especially for those who produce electronic music.

Oh yes, pretty please with cherry on top!  Excellent Suggestion, and most certainly this would put S1 even further ahead of the competition in terms of workflow. So Yeah, definitely worth considering, and a very smart move to make.
