You must have a very broad definition of need my friend... kind of like 
mine!  It's not a toy!  IT'S A TOOL!

I honestly thing you'll love the EDP.  That being said, it might not do 
exactly what you want, but like the other person said, with loop copy 
you can kind of simulate it.  do a track of percussion, copy it to 
another location then add rhythm guitar.  Now go back to the first loop 
and it seems like you just took away the guitar.  I worked this way 
when I had an EDP and it was very easy and elegant. (Mine had a serious 
factory defect and had to be returned) Now with that said, I don't have 
an EDP and I use the 4 track Repeater to do this same thing.

Been there.

I honestly think you could rethink your setup using some sort of 
groovebox or laptop based device running Live or Reason synced to an 
EDP or a Repeater.  Hell, you could get an old used JamMan too.
