Looking for a new looper

Is there anything out there with the following features:

* Stereo

* Threshold recording -- I essentially want to arm it, start playing,  
and then hit a button when it's time to repeat

* Multiply

* Feedback control

* Good MIDI clock generation

* Good MIDI clock sync

A pair of stereo channels would be better.

If I give up stereo, the EDP does this just fine (and I've got three  
of them). My understanding is that stereo fights with threshold  
recording on the EDP. Sigh.

The downfall for the Repeater in this regard is that it has a  
reputation for being a lousy MIDI clock source. Did they fix that in  

The Looperlative and the 2880 both actually look rather similar vis-a- 
vis this feature set (though the Looperlative is obviously bigger at  
8 tracks, supports non-synchronized tracks, has lots of MIDI support,  
etc), but they neither multiply nor support threshold recording from  
what I can tell.

My understanding is that the RC-50 lacks feedback control. Is that  

Am I missing any cases? Have I mischaracterized anything?

This all comes up because I've been finding new joy in my HandSonic  
and my MachineDrum using the former to control the latter and  
building up loops in a single EDP. But I really wish it was stereo  
and I really would like to set one stereo pair to playing a steady  
pulse while jamming in another stereo pair with feedback set fairly low.

Any suggestions? Do I just need to ditch all of this hardware and go  
to a computer-based system with a small mobile guitar rig for Y2K#
