A variation on this that makes for great rhythmic effects is to have the sampler in 'one-shot' mode with a playback start point that is definable by CV (or whatever) and the playback length (i.e. the amount of the sample that is played back) set to musical note lengths based on your sequencer tempo.

That way a note on message every eighth note could trigger playback of a section of the sample that lasted a sixteenth note and the playback start point could be cycled back and forth using a sine/triangle, sample and hold, etc.
