I need something like that and I have been looking around for one for
years and even suggested established music software developing players
to make such a product. Without success, obviously ;-)  What you want
is a "live sampler". I guess the inertia is comes from the fact that
most sampler users don't work in real-time when producing music,
meaning the market is not yet there but has to be created for a
commercial developer to step in. And samplers that play files already
saved to disc are easier to create, so they tend to work with that
kind of "commercially safe" product instead.

The closest thing I can think of is Mobius with the Rate Shift
function activated. But that will only work as a monophonic real-time
