Paul's right on regarding inherent limitations in the PC keyboard protocol.
I'm not sure how you're using Freewheeling - for instance, if you've
set it to play loops while the keys are pressed down, but not when
they're released, this won't help, but - in the standard config, with
tap tempo and sync on, I've been able to start/stop multiple loops "at
once" by sort of rolling my hand across the keys I want to hit - so
that I'm not hitting the keys at the same time, but within a short
enough span of time that it's still musical.
Ultimately, the cheap midi foot controllers now available make it an
easier system to work with, simply because it frees one's hands to
play instruments, gesture wildly, etc.
