DJ gear closing in on Loopers Wish List(?)

>From the most recent Sweetwater "InSync" online newsletter:
<<New in stock at Sweetwater Sound: The ultimate new DJ tool, the Sony 
has arrived. It's a MiniDisc-based platform with sampling trigger banks and
all sorts of instant looping and scratching features, including the
obligatory big rubber scratch wheel. Speed and pitch can be adjusted
independent of one another or together via a very simple dual slider
mechanism. The neat thing is that with their ATRAC compression technology
it's easy to record any performance you do right back to a MiniDisc and 
it ready to play instantly - all in real time. An experienced DJ could
really work some magic with this thing. Retail price $1200.>>
So, I wonder if it can be controlled with a foot switch?
