Ditto Looper is the looper you try once and love for life. TC Electronics have taken all that is good about loopers, trimmed away all the non-essential, mood-killing tech hoopla and ended up with a looper that is intuitive, tons of fun, sounds great and doesn't break the bank.

Its 'one knob' button may seem like a minimalist approach, but all the essentials are there: record, undo/redo, stop and erase are all accessed via different foot-commands that always make sense, whether you are building loops, changing from one part to the next (we're looking at you, live performers) or adding layers to a song. Tone quality should still always be priority number one so that's why the loops produced are in 24 bit uncompressed high quality audio.

Make looping as easy as 1-2-3. No hassle or needlessly complicated stuff, Ditto Looper is boiled down to the essentials and makes control intuitive yet flexible, so guitarists can focus on what matters most: playing and performing. You press once to record, press once again to play the loop. Press once to add another layer of sounds (something you can keep repeating until you run out of ideas). You press and hold to Undo a layer and press and hold again to Redo. Press twice to stop, after which you can press and hold to clear the loop.

The Ditto Looper has a ton of great features aside from its simple layout and controls. It provides 5 minutes of looping time which is more than you'll ever need and unlimited overdubs. It has an ultrasmall footprint and takes up almost zero space on your pedal board, saving you precious realestate. It's great for quickly getting rid of parts you aren't feeling, but it's been found that many people actually use this to change parts during live performance, say from verse to chorus Ditto works great in either scenario. The single knob allows you to set the level of your loops as a subtle background or a mindblowing performance.

In addition the Ditto Looper always let's your ˜dry sound' pass without ever converting it to digital, keeping your original tone just that original and purely as you intended it coming through with zero latency. And when it's bypassed, it's REALLY off. The Ditto Looper also stores your loops when you power down or disconnect the power plug. This means absolutely zero worries, as the music you've created stays stored and is ready to go when you need it whether you're just jamming on ideas, rehearsal, live performance or studio.

Note: Power supply sold separately.

I've had this Looper for about a week now and never used one before. I've tried the RC30 made by Boss at the music store debating whether to spend to much money $300 and wasn't sure if it's worth the hassle of trying to figure this thing out. I've done the live solo performances with Drum machines and vocal machines. But I've become a much better live performer just by using my natural voice and Acoustic guitar skills with no electronics, you know real raw talent from the heart!! So with that in mind I wasn't sure about getting back into the world of enhancements! Enough about me! With this Looper I found it nice to play the song and record as I sing the verse or the whole song, what ever it is you would like to do and pick the melody the next time around. I can see where in the near future it will help improve my melody guitar picking. It is very simple and easy to use live and also cool to listen to your rhythm playing. I highly recommend the Ditto Looper for its simplicity, especially if you don't want all they bells and whistles the other loopers have that makes it harder to use and are so over priced One thing would be nice is if TC Electronics would have added a button or switch so you can just use the Looper for one time loop instead of adding more. I would like to record, play the loop and press the button once to stop. The hardest thing about any looper is the double tap to stop while doing a live performance. Sometime I make a mistake and press it once and it is recording over the first loop so you have to really pay attention. This Looper is very small which is nice and will fit in your Guitar case or gig bag!! I hope they make one with one loop. Press once to play over and once to stop!!! Now that's the real world of a live performance. Great Job TC Electronics!!! AAA

I loved this pedal at first. It is compact and performs as expected. However, I have had it for less than a month, and now the foot switch doesn't work; and it's not like the pedal saw heavy use... No, I didn't get pro coverage, but I shouldn't have to for a pedal that cost this much already. I thought the prices for all the other brands of pedals were exorbitant, but now I realize that the ditto looper is cheaper because it's of substantially less quality.

    Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I've been a longtime bass player, and I was simply looking for a looper to spice up my practice and jam sessions a bit. This pedal does just the job. While I can't rag on all the toys and add-ons that you may find on other loopers (since I haven't tried them), this affordable pedal gets the simple job of looping done for me. The controls are easy, you just need to start/stop the recording, and you're good. You can even put additional layers over that by doing the same thing. You can even erase a loop, then undo the erase and bring it back, which is useful if you're looking for a more dynamic jam. The sound quality through it is great, tand the level knob works fine. The stop button is very responsive and easy to press.

      Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Bought my Ditto 11-14-13 at GC. Absolutely loved this pedal. It's small, affordable, sounds great. About a decade ago bought a big "double-decker" Boss looper and hated it: it was, big, expensive, and while it had some features, I hated the playback. Also, unfortunately, I was young and wasn't musically mature enough to loop at a high level. Years later The Ditto appears out of no where and became my constant work horse companion for literally hundreds of shows and touring. It sounds so good and has been so reliable that I hate to write "the bad".

      Last night I'm packing up heading to a small bar. I didn't expect to play last night though often like to bring a guitar and literally "just" the Ditto, in case I'm able to play for a song or two and want easy set up. I picked up the pedal and heard a "clanking" noise of moving parts. This pedal is too small for a battery which meant trouble. The on/off switch had totally disconnected from the metal base. It's so frustrating: obviously I used this pedal heavy but I'm struggling with the idea of a pedal having problems within the first three years (closer to two years). I reached out to TC: they were very nice in replying to my email though all they could do was recommend servicing. The spots they recommend all have a flat fee to get the pedal worked on, which is frustratingly close to the cost of a new ditto during a holiday sale. I've recently had other pedals die like this: a lot of companies brag on their "true bypass" circuitry pedals that do sound amazing, but are made so cheaply they die fast - and the switch is the first go go.

      I'm thinking about buying a Boss RC-1 - I'm assuming play back has improved from the early 2000s and though it's not true bypass, the pedal design can stand up to the heavy touring I do while these new guys cannot. So frustrating. Bottom line - it's a great pedal, though do a google search before you buy: 1-3 years of heavy use will kill it.

          Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          No power supply included - not stated clearly enough. If you don't have a pedalboard (with a dedicated power supply) you will need to spend extra money for a power supply.

          For someone without, this should be made more obvious as the product is suddenly not as inexpensive as it seemed and rather inconvenient to have to go out and find/buy a power supply separately.

          I am returning mine. Since I have to make a trip to the store and spend another $20 I'll buy some other brand looper.

          This looper is just as advertised: simple and to the point. Press once to record, another time to stop, press again to record alongside, double click then hold to delete. great quality, tough to figure out the first time but then easy. Saves space and leaves tone untouched.

          Looping has never been easier

          By robert

          Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I have wanted a looping pedal for a while, but every one I had tried seemed too complicated to make it practical for my use. I had actually given up on the search when a friend informed me of the Ditto Looper. I did some research and watched some videos on it's use on the TC Electronics website and decided I had to check it out, but it would be on my next trip to Guitar Center. Then I got an email from Guitar Center that showed the pedal had been put on sale. That was enough for me. I got in my car and drove straight to the store, then tried the pedal and was amazed at how simple it was. No longer does a quality looping device need multiple pots or switches to set. The Ditto did everything I was looking for with just a volume knob for the looped track and a footswitch to turn on the recording or turn it off. The other manufacturers should be ashamed of themselves for making their looping pedals so difficult to figure out. This pedal rocks and you don't need to be a PHD to figure it out. Get this pedal. My learning curve was less than 2 minutes.

          Simple to use

          By Fredrik Knoph

          from Bergen

          Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          What I wanted was a simple pedal for making a backing track so that I can play solos. This one fits my bill perfectly. It's easy to use, once you have learned the way it works. It's not necessarily intuitive, but that would probably require more knobs. If you want to get fancy, this is not for you, but if you want it simple, this is definitely worth a look. Featurewise, it has what I want. It's not much, but enough for me. It's rock solid, and looks like it will live happily on my pedal board for years to come.

          Comments about TC Electronic Ditto Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:

          i was excited when the looper came in the mail. after adding it to my pedal board, i sat down to play. pressed the switch once to record..great, pressed again to play...great. pressed again to overdub.. great. pressed and held, what does that mean? undo? undo first and second layer or second layer? because pressing and holding doesnt change anything. in fact trying to get it to stop is a nightmare. erase??? its like the battery commercial it goes and goes. its the most frustrating thing ive ever delt with. im finding my self just stomping angryly on it trying to get it to stop.i dont want to go play my guitar right not because im very discombobulated. dont buy it.
