Personally I don't draw a line between being a "musician" or a "sound
artist" or a "DJ," nor do I think any of them is necessarily
"loftier" or more valid than another (my violist partner would
disagree). As in most things there are good ones and crappy ones,
smart ones and stupid ones. I've heard some really excellent mixing
and have even played on bills with some. I'm personally more into
"whacked-out" music, and I'm not especially into dance music (I did
enough of that in my teens and twenties). I'm also a fan of
Plunderphonics, and I don't think an artist necessarily has to create
all his/her sounds from scratch (pun intended).

I agree with Sean that the lack of an answer to your question is
probably due to simple ignorance of such a VST plug-in. Don't give up
hope, though.
Max/MSP is a programming language that would allow the creation of
just such a "soft" processor. One of the features of MSP is that you
can create VST plug-ins. There is even a collection of these called
Max/MSP is probably outside your budget, and you probably don't want
to become a programmer anyway. Someone else might do it though. There
is a loop sequencer called radiaL due for release later this year.
