the way for you to go, most hardware loopers wouldn't do all you require.

However, I will bring to your attention something that I have been using

is essentially just a loop-sampler (no overdubbing of any loop), but it 
does allow 6 separate time related loops, all synced together nicely, each 
one starting as soon as each loop is recorded.  Each loop can be turned 
off, faded out, or reversed independently, and there is some nice onboard 
filtering (unfortunately of all the loops en-masse).  The 'pro' version 
has other features such as loop slicing, and the ability to communicate 
with PC/MAC.  I have modified mine to give footswitch control (not 

It's pretty simple and rather deficient as a general purpose looper in 
many areas, but you might want to consider this.
