You can do this with an echoplex quite easily. You can also have it send
clock with different meters in relation to your taps. (ie your taps equal 2
beats, or four, or seven, or whatever) You can do a lot of other things
with an echoplex that are probably a bit more exciting....

I think some roland stuff for dance music also does this. The MC-303 and
the DJ70-MKII maybe. They're not footpedals, though, but both are
interesting products in their own right. There must be others.

wow, a cyclone user! When I was at Gibson no one really knew what this
thing did, but people were still buying it every now and then. I remember
being at trade shows and meeting fanatical cyclone users. You thought
looping was a niche.....
