New Looper Idea

Just an idea:
Wouldn't it be neat to have a fully programmable EDP-type
looper/multi-effects unit? By this, I mean a unit the size of the EDP
with some sort of a computer interface (Ethernet?). The programming
software (PC or Mac?) would object-based (similar to MAX/MSP) and could
be configured in various ways. I think more than just looping/delay
functions should be available, i.e. various other effects
pitch-shifting, vocoder, etc. The completed configurations would be
downloaded to the looper via the interface and could be overwritten at

- no need to carry around a PowerBook or whatever
- unit would be dedicated and therefore more reliable than said computer
- extremely flexible effect combinations possible
- complete compositions could be "programmed" and easily performed

Hello audio engineers, is this feasible? Or this idea already old hat?
