Along the lines of the Toneprint series, comes a small (very small) loop effect. The keywords here are: simplicity and effectiveness. Read more…

TC Electronic Ditto Looper

What are the effects, or types of effects available?
LOOP, samples, loops, samples, loops!!


Is the general configuration easy to use ?
can’t get any simpler.

Is sound/effects editing easy?
again, can’t get any simpler

Is the O&M Manual clear and precise? ...
ditto, can’t get simpler


Is the sound of your instruments or your microphones faithfully reproduced?
well yes, that's it, the reason for my review
I own an RC 20 XL and the timeline, and well, the sound is better on the TC than on the other two, being a true bypass and having no compression keeps the sound real.

With what instruments do you use them?
guitars, that's it


How long have you been using it ?
1 month, continuously with no sleep or food

What thing do you like most/least about it?
the presets:
- one press and you start the recording
-one more press, it loops
- press again, you get to redo, etc..
- hold the button down, you get to undo
- press twice, stops the loop
- hold it down a few seconds, erases
BUT, IF YOU HOLD IT DOWN WHILE THE LOOP IS STOPPED, YOU HEAR A MICRO SECOND BEFORE THE DELETE, which means that right when you think you don't need the loop anymore, you need to press twice to stop the loop AND HOLD IT DOWN TO DELETE, if you forget, you're dead!!! So that's one bad point, which is mega for a live application!!

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
like daddy, I've got two.

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

I read the preceding reviews (posts)..OK money's tight guys, but $100, pretty cheap, what else can I tell ya.
Fender or Boss would have put the same thing out at over $150.
Innovation, development, shipping, patents, mark ups, middlemen , all this costs money. May not sound like much but try calculating in reverse:
$100 - tax - profit margin: the distributor has to buy it at around $60 from the reseller who has to buy it from TC at around $40/45, TC is probably making only $40 a pop!!
so, no, the price is very competitive and we get stomped on by the distribution.

Everything said in the dj t very good advice prcdent!


Tiny !! Surprise when I have reciept is a guarantee! you is tiny in your box! But once the branch and then racorde respect! all pokey! but maouse costo!


Sound quality: full compliance with the range of the instrument, and it's nothing to say; Taylor 214ce-N guitar and amp Rivera Sedona Lite DLX it's happiness!


A small bomb in the world of instruments effects, small but a marvel for the signal from the instrument damn good and well thought, a manual in PDF Tlcharger on the TC website, it ' is already a best! The srieux and professionalism for control in Effect One line

moixjj's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The looping for dummies (like me)"

TC Electronic Ditto Looper
I will not repeat the features already very well detailed by my co-religionists. I will focus on my mind to direct people who would hesitate to buy one.
It's hard to write about its features that are worth the price and its target audience: beginners looping and hackers at home.


Configuration is as simple. I started to feel the looping with this pedal. I play bass and guitar. It allowed me to have fun at home by combining percussive layers, rhythm, riffs of bass and guitar riffs. It happens very easily to a very convincing result. However, as noted by other users, set the level to 14h or 15h to have a volume that corresponds to that of the input. It is a curious absence knowing TC Electronic, especially since it should not be difficult to correct.
Where it is a nice pedal for a beginner like me, is that it allows quick and fun to be "educational". But they all want to be able to have more control over the loops. Especially to mutate and restart loops of their choice ... or can stop the sound in one click (Second big flaw of the pedal).
The need to move to another level is felt as soon as you try to use it as a group. I invite the reader to read the previous opinions that address the topic extensively. Say to summarize, this is not a pedal for group play ... even less in concert. It is far too limited for that.


No complaints about the sound quality is at the rendezvous. Whether on guitar, bass, the sound is made. It's a little bit to pick up when we play in rehearsal on a big bass stack with a big sound dub ... but as I said, it's not really made for that. On a small system at home is frankly beyond reproach.


I use it for a few months. This is my first looper and I will keep it to hack at home, use for which it excels, especially at this price. For group play, it would erase two flaws: the volume knob and tap to stop playing the pedal. And to be really usable in concert, it would take several "channels" in parallel (3 or 4) in order to have more control over each of the loops.
The value for fun solo and discover the world of looping with a reliable tool without being disgusted by a gas plant is frankly very correct. I advise very strongly for that use.

benoi31's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simple, effective, but with defects"

TC Electronic Ditto Looper
So it is a high definition looper with two buttons: a switch, and an adjustment of the output level.
You said simplistic?

This is also the aim of the pedal to be easy to use and suitable for guitarist, good intentions certainly, but can be a bit too far as we will see below.


Very easy to use:
- First click: Red LED, recording is started. As soon as one releases the switch, the LED turns green and recording in a loop
- Second click: overdub
- Quick double click: it stops the loop
- Long click: it clears the overdub.
- Short click and long click: clears the loop

Here we see the flaws of the show: managing off with a double click, it's just hell live / group of conditions, because it is almost impossible to stop the loop at just the right moment, or remove the overdub appropriate time.

A stop button as the X2 version would have been 10 times more convenient.

Besides when you want to clear the loop, click the short sound again if it has stopped! Can not delete a loop stopped discreetly what ... Hard in the condition as live!

Another concern: the LED is hidden by the foot. It's stupid but it may surprise when we believe we are currently recording but in fact not at all ...

The switch is also very sensitive, there is no "click" to enclechement so that it takes some practice to properly calibrate rhythmically.

Finally, the small size of bousin is painful casually: touching the volume knob easily with his foot, its length is too small to properly calibrate the pedal to a pedalboard-type process

One last disappointment: the metal top button of the switch came off on my own, impossible to pick ...

In short, it's simple, but it also has many live inconvenience.
In either against, it's ultra-convenient! In my opinion this is really a little looper unpretentious especially for the game at home to train on a blues grid for example.
Live or group, it is better to move towards the X2.


It restores fine sound, overdubs are placed well without setting a boiled or saturated, it is very clean.

Only small problem: the output level equal to that input is approximately 15 hours.
So do not plan to use it to boost the loop


At the beginning he was very convenient to my home: loops, overdub, even complex pieces with lots of loops, all I could with this little thing!

Proud as a bartaba I come in groups, and there the thing the ergonomics of trouble we started: with loops shifted too sensitive switch, problems to stop at the right time, difficult to properly overduber ...

In summary I would say that if you are looking for a looper at home, easy to use and without the fuss, it will be the perfect looper! Also at a reasonable price!

If you want a looper to the group play / live, head to the X2.

From the moment it has targeted its needs, it is a very good pedal
