Re: such a lame beginner

Less than $300?  Sorry, no.  There's only two real-time performance 
loopers on the market right now, the Echoplex and the Boomerang.  Both have
their merits, but neither does any filter manipulation (and both are
significantly more than $300).  Both have reverse features, the Boomerang
also has an option to play back a loop at half-speed with corresponding 
in fidelity.  All of the sampler-based devices I'm aware of have some
real-time performance issues (e.g. can't create a loop and overdub
seamlessly, can't continuously overdub, etc).  For what you're wanting, I
suspect you'd need a good looping device, a mixer, and a filterbank in the
effects loop.  I'd suggest either sliding your Expectation slider way down,
or your Acceptable Price slider way up.
