- When working with stereo samples keep in mind that the 2 channels might have 0-crossing at two different places, so you might have some clicking on a channel.

- If you don't have a clearly identifieable 0-crossing, you can create one, most daws can apply very short fades.

- Do not just crank up the volume of a sample, use the normalise function to prevent clipping.


In your case, I would normalise the sample first (Audacity is a good free editor if you don't have one), then trim the sample at the beginning, slightly to the left of where the bar is on picture 3 or just before that little dip on picture 2.
Thanks!
