Re: such a lame beginner

For a lot of money, you probably could.  I believe that the Rocktron All 
Access and Digitech PMC-10 can be used to send all variety of midi 
not just program changes.  An Echoplex, midi-addressable mixer and effects
processor, shouldn't take more than $3k or so...

The looping field is so small and has such weird needs that manufacturers
never cater to what would be useful to us (four buss 1U mixers pop to mind
right away...).  Finding one item that does even most of what you (we) want
is out of the question.  Particularly on a budget.
