PRESENTLY
When you hit 'Audition' in the realdrums picker, the audio file is played from the beginning thru an extra audio file reader.

PROPOSAL
It would be fine to get the possibility to audition directly a selected variation of a Realdrums style, and not to listen the whole song linearly.

For example, You choose the Realdrums BossaRock^ style, you choose the variation#5 a,b:Brushes,SideStick.
Result : you hear the Realdrums style playing the variation#5 ; you hear only the RealDrums starting at the variation#5, and not the full song demo.

APPLICATION :
This feature would be useful to help to select one variation rather another one.
Other applications can be found by other Realdrums users.

! GREAT NEWS ! laugh

My request about auditioning the RD variations is granted in 2018 version.
Furthermore, the implementation in BIAB is as I described it.

I think it is really a useful feature for all BIAB users and especially in helping us to choose the right RD variation.

Good job PG Music people !
