...well on second thought, if you are talking about being able to simultaneously record samples etc & run beats internally with the MPC 1000 you are correct that it isn't possible- the machine simply wasn't designed that way. That being said, there are a variety of options via MIDI to enable the use of the MPC as the master sequencer/clock control but you have to have all your MPC samples pre-loaded. It might be possible using multiple machines, but it sounds like you're looking for a hardware sampler designed around live looping. I'm not currently aware of one but there are plenty of good pad based options using an Ableton interface...
