TC-Helicon's Ditto Mic Looper is a straightforward looper pedal for your vocal mic or any other instrument you mic up. Vocalists - use the stop/erase and loop buttons for unlimited overdubbing, undo, and redo features to add a deeper level of musical interest to your songs with just your voice by looping your own harmonies and vocal percussion tracks. Drummers and percussionists, use the Ditto Mic to keep the beat while adding flourish to your solos. And now guitar players who want the expressiveness only a pedal offers can harness the power of looping using their vintage acoustic guitars, banjos, and other instruments that aren't equipped with electronic outputs.
The USB connection lets you plug into your computer to access TC-Helicon's app, VoiceSupport. With this free app you'll get tips for getting the most out of your Ditto Mic pedal along with updates that keep your pedal performing its best and you'll be able to access any new features TC-Helicon designs for the pedal.
Despite its form factor, regarding the Mic Looper a mere stompbox would be misleading. As a member of TC Helicon's vocal processor line, this pedal is strictly studio grade - complete with a clean, quiet mic preamp and studio-quality A/D conversion. And since you can control it with TC-Helicon's MP-75, or other microphones equipped with mic control capabilities, you can easily control the Ditto Mic Looper's functions right from your handheld microphone!
Go from idea to performance in an instant, with ease. One knob, two buttons – it couldn’t be simpler! With its superior audio quality, unlimited overdubs and Undo/Redo, Ditto Mic Looper is the essential choice for looping vocals and instruments.
Using Ditto Mic Looper is exactly like plugging a mic directly into the PA – you only need to set input gain once, at the mixer. No more trial-and-error to find the optimal balance between input gain on your effects unit and the mixing desk.
As a singer, beatboxer, horn-blower, percussionist, or string-player, the power and musical ease of Ditto Mic Looper cannot be overstated. Even the faintest musical idea can be explored, built up, torn down and just plain enjoyed in private, practice or performance. See it at work in this video.
The dedicated STOP switch on Ditto Mic Looper means that you can pause your loop exactly when you want, without having to double-tap to stop and fudge your timing – as on single switch units. This means that your LOOP button is totally focussed on your looping creation with Record/Play/Overdub functions.
