RE: QUEERY: What samplers are out there let you record andinstantaneously play back from a keyboard

These type of units are really just sample playback units, so once you 
the first sample, you wouldn't be able to "overdub". Although you could arm
multiple samples and fade from one to the other on the SU700 since each
sample has a separate volume/effects control. But, you can have up to 8
"looped" samples (4 tracks x 2 loop pads) playing back in a sequence and
control some aspects of each independently.

The SU700 does not support keymapping though, but does support real-time
time stretch and a tool simply called "groove" which allows you to adjust
the timing, velocity, and gatetime of a sample. It can either change the
rhythmic feel of a sample drastically, or give percussive elements to a 
beat oriented sample. The "Roll" button can be nice if your doing Drum 'N
Bass or Jungle style music since it will slice of a defined quantized piece
(by note duration up to half note) of the sample and loop it back.

I don't use keyboards very much so I'm kind of ignorant on how you operate
the sampling keyboards.  After you make an initial sample, how do you
overdub more sound to the sample?
