I forgot to mention that I'm on a mac.
I'd actually prefer NOT to use a laptop and just keep it hardware based (looper + something that holds audio that can be organized / triggered).
I'll have a look at the Roland and Akai products you mentioned and see if I can figure out how to sync one to a repeater (or what i've got right now - a boss RC-50)
Thanks - any more info is welcome.
