A great and affordable looper, but, the features are limited.
montymergo, 20.04.2020
This looper is a great choice for beginners that are new to guitar looping and want to explore the concept. The controls are simple and it's easy to use.

Here are some pros and cons in my opinion...

Pros:
- The sound quality is impeccable, which really is the most important thing you should take into account when buying a looper pedal. The sound signal is 24-bit with true bypass and analog-dry-through. There's no unwanted noise, buzzing, etc. Just remember to keep the firmware updated (you can find the instructions on how to do this on TC Electronic's website).
- Affordable.
- Sturdy and compact build quality.
- Small and easy to carry around.
- No quantizing. I see this as a pro, not a con, because it makes you aware of your rhythm and timing when playing, which is something that's rather important to learn.

Cons:
- The features are limited to only one knob that controls volume. There's no way to change the loop tempo with the Ditto, and you can only save one loop.

For the price, this looper might be the best one on the market. If you're looking for a simple and concise looper that's affordable, you'll like this one.

Mini micro tiny looper
DonSchlup, 10.03.2019
TC Electronic has made an affordable, functional, little looper with the Ditto, and there's not much to complain about it.
I've been using it to experiment with textures and layers, and it's been stellar so far. I've yet to try it at a gig, but at the moment there are no worries wether or not it will deliver, performance-wise.
Of course, given the price tag, there is the thought in the back of my mind wether or not this pedal will last very long, especially after reading about some long term issues with it. But I think that even if it doesn't, it's cheap enough to buy another one, or upgrade it if looping ends up being your thing.
To sum it up, basically, it's simple to use, it has good sound quality, enough time on tap to play a bunch with it before it overloads, and it doesn't break the bank.
So, this is one happy camper right here :)

EDIT: After a few months, the footswitch is on the edge of breaking, it seems. Several times that I step on it to record a second layer, and it just stops, or I step twice quickly to stop and it just deletes the whole loop. But still, it's ok for home use.

TC Electronic Ditto
10.07.2016
First off, this pedal does not use batteries. You will need a 9V adaptor to power the TC Electronic Ditto. I thought I had one, but when it arrived, I realized I didn?t. So, I had to order the adaptor and wait a few extra days before I could try it out?

Speaking of days, I received this from Germany in 7 days. (I live in the US) I was extremely excited to get it, and it was a bummer I had to wait a couple more days?

Was the pedal worth the wait?

It most definitely was.

I?ve been wanting a ?looper? pedal for a long time. After spending several hours searching on Youtube which would be the best for me, I settled on the TC Electronic Ditto.

I play a range of different styles. From metal, to church music, and even Cigar Box guitars. This pedal is working wonderfully for each. I admit, I don?t use it as much for the church stuff, but I have to lay down a wonderful bottom for my monster-metal, and for laying some old school blues for my cigar box guitars.

I wish I had gotten this a lot sooner. The ease of use is amazing. Click once, and your recording. I lay my rhythm down. Click again, I can jam on top of it. Click again, and I can record some power chords over the rhythm, then click again, and I can jam on top of it.

It?s really that simple to use.

The pedal is small, but like Marvel Comic?s Wolverine, it?s tough. Several people have laughed at it because of how small it is, but it feels immensely solid, and it?s had no trouble handling live performances.

The ?loop? tone is clear, with no weird sounds/tones popping up in the playback. I had this small worry that the playback would affect my tone?Nope. It?s no problem at all.

The ONLY issue with this setup doesn?t have anything to do with the pedal?.it?s just a common one people have with using ?loopers.? You have to make sure your timing is right when clicking on/off the pedal. If you leave a little bit of space in-between, you will hear it on the loop. It all comes down to timing?and practice should fix that.

This pedal is wonderful. I love it, and it?s really played a big role in taking my life performance to a whole new level. If you want a pedal for loops, and quality is what you are looking for, right here is your answer? TC Electronic Ditto!

Updated review after ~3 years of use. Bad quality!
Bharat, 13.12.2013
Updated Review:
The switch on this looper is very bad quality, there is a spring inside and after decent amount of use the mechanical switch will give out, and the switch will not function properly. I had to open it up and fix it twice already, will not use it in a gig, or even in rehearsals with band.
Another big problem is it cannot handle Line-Level FX loop on amps. In simple words if you are running this pedal in FX loop of your amp, and you hapen to have an amp which has FX loop on line level, this pedal will give you a volume drop. Even though the manual says that it should work on line-level impedance, it doesn't.
And if you loop too many sounds over it, it sound like a mud, also tends to go out of sync.


Review when I bought it:
I play in a post rock band, and I slowly build overlays of various sounds and in the end achieving a massive wall of psychedelia, and looping is quiet essential in this process,therefore I wanted something simple, and due to lack of space on my pedal board I wanted something small. And Ditto-Looper pretty much fits the bill.
It is quiet simple to operate, the instruction manual is barely a page long. Gives you a maximum of 5 mins loop time, true bypass, 24 bit-96Khz sound quality, and a knob to control the voulme of the recorded loops, this I think is essentially what everyone wants from a looper.
And I really like the foot switch of looper, it is quiet soft, allows you to operate it with a subtle press, otherwise in other pedal the footSwitch is a bit more hard to press you need to time things with more concentration.
I have been using this pedal since 7-8 months, and it has been very helpful in coming up with song ideas, I often loop guitars, and play bass and drums, and figure out some new ideas for the song. It is a very helpful tool, this has also in a way helped me to improve my guitar playing ability. It is a nice tool and quiet simple to use, and I totally recommend it.
