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.

A small looper with a great sound.
KonstantinosM, 28.11.2020
The TC Electronic Ditto Looper is as small and as simple as it gets. It can easily fit into any setup and if you are fine with the minimalistic approach, it is an excellent basic looper.
It has an analog dry-through to ensure optimum sound, and the 24bit recording of the "loop" is also of high quality. These are the main reasons why I bought this device. As my previous looper, a Digitech Jamman, degraded the sound a lot.
The five minutes of loop time are more than enough for my use; mostly practicing or jamming with simple loops. Due to the single switch design, it is quite difficult to use in a live context though, ao I would look at the Ditto X2 or X4 if I planned to use it in a concert.
I use it in my Temple Audio board, just after my Strymon El Cap and Flint pedals in the signal chain and then directly into my Suhr Badger 18.
Some people report problems with the modern TC Electronic pedals, but I have this as well as a Polytune and use them daily for years without any issue so far.
All in all, if you are looking for a simple to use, small and affordable looper; look no further.

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.

TC Electronic Ditto with Double Bass
Spoobler, 13.09.2013
The day my TC Electronic Ditto arrived I was playing double bass in a pit orchestra for a production of 'The Sound Of Music'. I arrived early to put the Ditto into action before sound check.

The Ditto excels in every aspect that I was hoping it would. My previous experience with a looping pedal was with a Boss RC-20. I liked that pedal for the most part but I sold it for two reasons. 1: It was too large to permanently stay on my pedal board and 2: I felt that it altered the tone of my bass. So these two factors were what I was looking for in the Ditto. I was not disappointed. The size is obviously a big selling point, but the tone coming through the pedal is the clincher for me. Another bonus is that, because I used it first with my double bass, I found that it has a high input impedance, meaning that I did not need to place a piezo buffer in front of it. This is a very useful feature for me.

As for the looping functions - the simplicity is a huge selling point too. Some might think that it has too few features, but I give it five starts because the simplicity of the features is what attracted me to it. The Boss RC-20, whilst brilliant in it's ability to store what you've previously recorded, was simply more than I needed. No fault of Boss there. The Ditto just stores what you are currently looping. Disconnect the pedal and the loop is gone. I'm 100% fine with that. The only knob on the Ditto is to control the volume of the recorded loop - this is a very useful feature in my opinion as that really is the only parameter I want to have control of.

So, all in all it's a great product and absolute value for money.
