Can't answer all your questions, try ghogan@lexicon.com
...and keep in mind that I haven't actually used either,
I'm a MPX100 user who's researched them as a possible upgrade.

>can i loop on the 500 and have my guitar playing through?

>tremolo + rotation
trems excellent 
rotations very good
(can only be better than the MPX100)

>pitch shift MPX1
the fact this uses up processing power could be a sign it works well,
... the pitch on the MPX100 only works well on single note I/P
possibly the MPX500 is the same.

Basically I reckon the MPX1 is much more powerful than the 500,
it belongs in a higher price bracket than the 500.
...but the 500 is newer (&cheaper)
if the loop facility in the 500 is identical to the 100, then it may
share the problems, I'd suggest you try out an infinite loop
while receiving midi-clock and see if the signal degrades.
