Can i make Kontakt play a sample loop endlessly after pressing the key just once?

Hey i was wondering if it is possible to set up a Kontakt instrument in a way that it plays every sample loop i start by pressing a key forever. Is there any way to assign an LFO and make it endlessly long so the sample loop would never stop after pressing the key until i turn down the volume of the instrument?

i have some samples that are just seconds long but i don't want to "play" them in Kontakt but rather "trigger" them by pressing the key. they should then go on and on in a loop until i turn down the volume..

maybe there is a way to "lock" a key after pressing it?

    A minimal example

    on init
    end on
    on note
    end on

    the last argument in the play_note function is related to its duration. "0" will play the entire sample. If you set a loop in the mapping editor, you will get it to play forever.

    There is a factory script called MIDI Latch that does exactly this. Try it.
