Ping-pong loop

Ping-pong/alternating forwards-backwards looping pretty please!

For me this is an essential part of my process. It is very useful for joining slices together in alternate tempos and great for creating interesting effects and textures.

PING-PONG LOOPING!
Absolutely 100% agree with @oteeba !!!
Ping-pong is an absolute must have feature in my sampling style and without it I feel like a guitarist with no fingers.

Yup.
Ping-Pong Loop is the metric that I use to determine if a modern sampler is worthwhile or not.
You have to make exceptions to this rule for old gear like the SP-12, EMAX, etc where it either hadn’t been thought of, or wasnt possible because of the hardware, CPU etc.
I remember back when I first got a PC and could run FastTracker II, (1995?) and I discovered ping-pong loops and cross-fade. I was blown away, and it has since become necessary for my sound. Elektron samplers like the Octatrack, DigiTakt and the even Analog RYTM are great for their ping-pong and cross-fades, I use those lots.
