Yes this can definately be done.

The ER-1 is especially suited for this. It has two audio input channels with their own sequencer parts. However you only can trigger 1 note per sequencer track (10 total on the ER). Getting creative you can layer samples on the same note, assign different filter/env/LFO settings.

I own the ER-1 and an S-950, but have never used them together. I have used the ER-1 with a Bass station , and an Akai X-7000 with a Roland R-5/R-70 drum machine.

MIDI OUT from ER-1 to MIDI IN on S-900.
Audio out from S-900 to Audio in on ER-1.(Audio thru enabled to hear the triggering of ALL channels...not just the two inut channels).
Bend it to fit, Paint it to match.
