“Is there any limitation on the K2000/K2500 that prevents Sample Loop Pointers from being anywhere in the Sample? Ideally, I would like to get the Loop Points as close to the ends of the Samples as possible. “
As answered by our illustrious Daniel Fisher:
The Sample Pointers in the . and K2500 are quite flexible. Your Start Point can be “anywhere” in the Sample as long as it’s at or before the End Point. It can even be after the Loop Start, which is very useful. Your Alt. Start Point can be “anywhere” in the Sample including before the Start Point or even after the End Point (although in this case it takes on the role of defining samples played after Note Release when the Alt. Start value is ON). Your Loop Point can be equal to, prior to, or after the Start Point, with the only restriction being that, it can equal the End Point but cannot exceed the End Point. The End Point is always after the Start Point and Loop Point, but it can be before or after the Alt. Start Point (see above).
