As I've said here before, the best thing I can suggest is to use Max 
running on a Powerbook, with some generic foot controller. That way 
you can have exactly the feature set and user interface you want, 
with a nice big display of system status. For this level of MIDI 
recording and control even an older generation Powerbook would be 
adequate (read "cheap"). The most expensive component of the system 
would probably be the software, but the entire thing can probably be 
put together in the range of $600-1000.
