If you are currently using Windows, and considering moving to Linux,

EnergyXT is a modular sequencer, it is very flexible and has a live
mode, which you could find handy for triggering loops. It is currently
Windows-only, but v2.0 - planned for "early 2006" - will be released
on Linux. It will also be a VST host, for VSTs natively compiled on
