Without a doubt, the original TC Electronic Ditto Looper is one of the most popular simple looper pedals ever released - it's certainly been a big hit with the gigging guitarists here at Music Experience. The Ditto Looper was so popular, in fact, that TC Electronic followed it up only a year later with the amazing Ditto Looper X2. The Ditto Looper X2 starts off with the same easy-to-use looping as it predecessor, but it also includes cool loop effects including half speed, reverse looping, or both. USB connectivity lets you import and export loops from your computer, stereo I/O gives you tons of setup flexibility, and you can store and play up to five minutes of 24-bit audio in the TC Electronic Ditto Looper X2.
The thing that made the original Ditto Looper such a widespread success was just how easy it was to use. Rather than requiring some elaborate, multi-switch tap dance to start and stop loops, all of its basic commands such as record, overdub, start, and stop were easily accessible via a single footswitch. So, when TC Electronic developed their Ditto Looper X2 pedal, they felt no reason to reinvent the wheel, providing you with the same straightforward operation you're sure to love. They did, however, add an internal dip-switch that lets you choose the configuration of this control. Select from either loop/play/overdub or loop/overdub/play to get the control set that best fits your style.
Here's where the TC Electronic Ditto Looper X2 gets really cool. In response to tons of feedback, TC Electronic added a couple of cool effects options to the Ditto Looper X2. These effects include half speed playback and reverse playback. What's more, you can combine the two modes together to create interesting musical atmospheres and unique sonic textures. And if you don't want to play with effects, you can use the FX footswitch as a dedicated loop stop control.
Another cool improvement in the TC Electronic Ditto Looper X2 is its ability to pass loops and even whole backing tracks to and from your computer via USB. Not only does this give you huge performance power, when you're just trying to learn a song and don't need a looper, this feature makes it easy to cue up your favorite tunes. Cooler still, TC collaborated with JamTrackCentral to provide you with a whole library of wonderful backing tracks to get you started. And with the Ditto Looper X2's stereo I/O, you can take full advantage of any tracks you find.
The original Ditto Looper rocked guitarists with a lust for looping like nothing else. Finally something that was simple, made for guitarists and sounded great. What would possibly be better? Well, how about all of that, plus new, next level looping features forged from pure awesome?
Guitarists love Ditto Looper like nothing else. Its ultra simple design and guitar-centric features like true-bypass, analog dry-through, high quality audio, as well as 5 minutes of looping time and unlimited overdubs resonated with guitarists around the world. So why mess with what we nailed the first time?
Let ya in on a little secret? We love effects. But to us they need to make sense, and the resurgence of loopers fueled by Ditto Looper had more and more guitarists scream: loop-laden effects please! Ditto Looper X2 allows you to play loops in reverse, half-speed or both at the same time. Which, as you might imagine, can make for a subtle performance or a jaw dropping show that makes the audience stop dead in their tracks.
Your loops are a reflection of you. So, to have them trapped in a tiny box just doesn't make any sense. Now, you are free to export your loops and work with them in a DAW of your choice, or you can import loops and even backing tracks to and take them to gigs. Small sentence, HUGE advantage for gigging musicians!
You love tone, so do we, and our design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, we got your back. With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switch and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. And, no matter if the pedal is on or off your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all it's pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.
Ditto X2 is the natural evolution of Ditto Looper. We've listened to all the feedback we've had from happy Ditto users and carefully selected a handful of amazing features that are designed specifically to take your looping to the next level. Ditto X2 is for when you want to get serious about looping, but without sacrificing that signature-simplicity that guitar players know and love from Ditto Looper.
One thing we decided to focus on was a dedicated stop-button. If you have ever tried looping during a live performance then you know the importance of being able to stop the loop exactly when you want to. Ditto X2 lets you use the FX footswitch as a dedicated stop, letting you end things nice and easy.
Oh, and speaking of nice and easy - we've collaborated with JamTrackCentral to give you a package of some of the best backing tracks available. The tracks are expertly recorded, feature solos by top guitarists and - best of all - they're free of charge when you buy a Ditto X2!
