The Ditto series was a noteworthy success for Danish pedal maker TC Electronic, which presented today a new evolution on the mini format of this looper pedal: Ditto+.
The main new feature of this new generation Ditto consists in the Extended Loop Mode, which allows you to put longer overdubs on top of shorter loops by stacking the short ones together side by side. This mode is explained by the company with this example:
Imagine you’re cooking up a cool little funk progression over a few bars.
You’ve laid down your first loop and you’re about to season it with a generous sprinkle of nickel-plated fairy dust.
BUT that tasty melody line in your head develops over several whole loop progressions instead of just one!
Enter Extended Loop Mode: When you start the overdub, DITTO+ repeats the first loop progression until you’re done before sewing it all together as one.
Navigation is made more user friendly by an LCD screen, and the preset system is expanded to 99 loop sessions
Check out the videos of the TC Electronic Ditto+, below.
DITTO+ takes all of the functionality that you know and love from the original Ditto Looper and expands it with a little extra. DITTO+’s extensive memory bank with 99 slots is like a personal library of loop sessions, making your songwriting process much more intuitive. Now you can easily record your thundering riffs, or store your favourite backing-tracks to solo over! The groundbreaking Extended Loop Mode lets you put longer overdubs on top of shorter loops by stacking the short ones together side by side. Imagine you’ve cooked up a cool little progression over a few bars and you’re about to rip a sweet riff on top of it, now you don’t have to worry with your riff being cut short. When you start the overdub, DITTO+ will repeat the first loop until you’re done and sew it all together in one tasty track. We’d all love to play with actual musicians but for most of us it’s hard to have a band ready in your room for whenever you’ve got a 15-minute hole in your schedule. DITTO+ lets you import premade loop sessions and backing tracks for such an occasion! Just pick your jam and rock out!
