Considering your preamble I would suggest having a look at Pure Data 
(aka PD)... although it doesn't specifically do what you're asking it 
would be easy to create a sampler with those characteristics (wouldn't 
be surprised if it already existed) and of course much more, and as you 
are getting into electronic music you'll find many situations where 
you'll have to create your own 'tool' for the job. PD might easy this 
task a lot, and IMHO is also great fun.
