Re: Sequencer question

Does anyone have recommendations for a sequencer well suited for looping 
the fly?  I'd like to be able to easily generate, queue and loop sequenced 
phrases from sysex.  Starting and stopping looped sequences might be 
straightforward, but idealy I would like to see something operate like an 
EDP where you can copy an idea to a new 'slot' and overdub, then queue up 
another to start after the current one is finished, etc.  Theoretically I 
suppose this could be done entirely with sysex and a sequencer that 
sysex control of these parameters, has anyone done this?

I might not be up on what's out there, but taking a cursory look around I 
found mainly software sequencers for composing, and the hardware 
sequencer/tone generator sort.  Fun toys all, but just looking for 
more specifically suited for me.
