Yamah DTX Multi 12: live looping capabilities

I might be getting a Yamaha DTX Multi 12 to augment my acoustic kit in a jazz/latin trio setting where the bassist is already overdubbing himself with loops in realtime.

Now: Can I program percussion loops on the fly (i.e.during live performances) and start/stop them? More or less like a loop pedal. Not interested in any preset loops, nor importing my own. They must be done on the spot and be directly loopable.

For example: setting up a pair of congas, MIDI sync with the bass players HELIX board, and then jam away a few bars of 3/2 clave and then stop the loop – either with a pad, or a connected pedal. To be immediately accesible later in the song.

Any input from users?
