Ditto Looper is the looper you try once and love for life. And you simply gotta try it. We've 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.

 

  • Designed by guitarists, for guitarists
  • Super intuitive
  • Great sound

 

Looping Sense

Ditto Looper was designed from the ground up with guitarists in mind. Hey, we play too, so it's what made sense to us. We made sure Ditto Looper takes up minimal space on your board, but still has the essential 'make your guitar-heart jump' features such as True Bypass and Analog-Dry-Through making sure your tone stays uncolored.

One Knob To Rule Them All

Ditto Looper simply loops. Well. It's '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.

 

Appeal To Your Inner Audiophile

If you know our products, you are used to things sounding great. We made absolutely sure this also goes for Ditto Looper, so the  loops produced are in 24 bit uncompressed high quality audio. Why settle for less if you love tone, right? Right!

 

Backstage Pass - All Access

The essence of Ditto Looper is a looper built by guitarists, for guitarists. High quality, super easy and fun to use and with features dedicated to the needs of guitarists, we simply can’t wait to see what you guys will do with this thing - we think it’s gonna rock!

Lots–a–Looping

Ditto Looper provides 5 minutes of looping time - which is more than you’ll ever need. Realistically, how many songs do you wanna have that are 10 hours long and still expect to get booked?

Dream big

Ditto Looper has an ultra-small footprint, meaning you’ll always be able to fit one! It takes up almost zero space on your pedalboard, saving you precious realestate *cough* more TC pedals *cough*.

Undo/Redo

Yeah, it’s great for quickly getting rid of parts you are not feeling, but we found many people actually use this to change parts during as live performance, say from verse to chorus - Ditto works great in either scenario.

Loop Level

It’s the only knob on there, and allows you to set the level of your loops (surprise!). This means your loops can serve as a subtle background to what you are doing or you can turn this up for a mind-blowing performance.

True Bypass

When Ditto Looper is bypassed, it's REALLY off, and has zero influence on your tone, making sure you have optimum clarity and zero loss of high-end.

Analog Dry–Through

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.

Go on, play with yourself

Can’t get enough of playing with yourself? Ditto allows unlimited overdubs, so do your worst!

A Looper To Remember

Ditto Looper 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 - be it just jamming on ideas, rehearsal, live performance or studio.

How Do You Ditto?

Ditto Looper makes 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. Ah, if only life were this simple.

The combination of true-bypass switching, an analog-dry-through signal path and 24-bit uncompressed audio results in sound quality all round. And while having to record, playback, overdub, undo, redo, stop, and erase functions all operated from a single footswitch may appear daunting, in practice it's a breeze - and you really can overdub indefinitely without the pedal freaking out. Wow!

If there’s a prize for musical return in relation to operational simplicity and expense, it’s hard to imagine a more worthy contender than the Ditto Looper—ever. And if you’ve ever been on the fence about looping, you may have just run out of excuses for taking the leap.

As the Ditto would fit into even the tiniest space on any pedalboard, you can now easily include a great looper into your setup without the need for a team of technicians. TC Electronic has managed to take a fresh approach to loop sampling with the Ditto. By doing away with overcomplicated design and focusing on the usability of the product, they have produced a tool that will enable us all to experiment more freely.

Thanks to the 24-bit uncompressed audio processing, we overlaid 23 loops without any discernible loss of playback quality, and, because simplicity is the key, we reckon the maximum looping time of five minutes is just about enough... With the combination of sound quality and ease of use, we can't help but be impressed with the Ditto Looper. Why make life difficult?

With true bypass and analog dry-through, your guitar tone remains unaffected by all the digital tech. If you want a petite, easy to use looper at a killer price, it's gotta be the Ditto.

The TC Electronic Ditto Looper is an instant classic. While other companies continue to update products every few years and complicate looping functionality, the Ditto Looper will likely remain an essential staple on the market. Its ease of use is second to none. It can’t be overstated how simple this pedal is to use. And most importantly, it sounds absolutely fantastic.

It's so small! Kudos to TC Electronic for packaging a pro quality looper in a box not much bigger than a Pez dispenser. If you're looking for something small and simple, especially for practice purposes or road convenience, the Ditto is damn attractive. The low price point makes it even more alluring.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.’ (Antoine de Saint Exupéry.Terre des Hommes). These sublime words are a true description of what the Danish brand TC Electronic has achieved with its Ditto Looper, which will easily fit in your pocket and is a real masterpiece of simplicity for a maximum of possibilities.

Guitar Part
by Guillaume Ley

What about the sound? Perfect, transparent, high definition (24 bit uncompressed), always clean and true to your gear. The best remains the smoothness of the switch, and the reaction time of the pedal. There is no latency, which allows for creating perfect loops. This is a killer in all its beauty. Genious simplicity, and high-end results. The top!

Ditto Looper simply loops. The audio quality is excellent and all essential functionalities are readily available. The 'less is more' approach works really well, and the intuitive controls, feature set, pristine audio quality and small dimensions makes Ditto perfect for guitarists.
