Hands on: TC Electronic Ditto

Looking for the world’s smallest and easiest-to-use looping pedal? The TC Electronic Ditto definitely fills those requirements! The Ditto is a super-compact “bantam” pedal with just a single footswitch and a single knob, yet it provides everything you need to put loops to work in your music.

Using the Ditto is simple: hit the footswitch to start recording your loop; hit it again to stop recording and start playback. While the loop is playing, use the switch to toggle overdub recording on and off. To undo or redo an overdub, hold down the switch while the loop is playing. To completely clear the loop, hold down the switch when playback is off. The knob controls the volume of the loop playback. There you go – the complete operating manual for the pedal!

The Ditto offers up to five minutes of loop time at 24-bit digital resolution, so you get plenty of time and stellar sound quality. Plus, it fits on any pedalboard. And at its price, the Ditto is a supreme value. TC has been on a solid roll with their pedals lately, and the Ditto only cements their leading position. Another winner from TC!
