    First... use periods.

    I think what you are looking for is a sampler. Google sampler and see if you find what you are looking for.

    What you're most likely talking about is the 360 systems instant replay.

    I don't care for it much, personally. Unless all your cues are short fx, it's rather a pain in that it has no transport control. That's why it's far better suited for broadcast. Furthermore, it's very expensive and in my mind, the features you pay for aren't as adventageous or useful for theatre. If I did get the unit you're talking about correct, I would not ever consider it.

    Also, I remember hearing that the hard drive they're using in the Instant Replay can't easily be found and can only be had through the company. That might not apply to new models, though.

    One system that you might be referring to is the AKAI MPC3000. It is a sampler player has become a major player in the production of HIP HOP but does a great job for sound fx
