check out the repeater! its not being made any more, but there are still many around for $500-$650 a pop. Its really got a lot of functionality that you've asked for. Decent MIDI implementation, follows midi clock really well, has 4 tracks with independent volume, has lots of loops, smart card media storage for loops, variable pitching and tempo (this is really cool!), and is a pretty good real-time looper. The EDP isn't really what you've asked for out front, but you might find you can actually do most of the things you're going to find out you really wanted to do in the first place, but didn't know how to ask for (...). There's lots more information in the archives. I live down on the Peninsula, so if you want to get together and check out what an EDP LoopIV or Repeater can do, drop me a line. There are also other software real-time loopers if you've got access to a laptop. I've seen people any number of software solutions, but I don't know much about them. anyone else?
