You’ll love this if you’re a singer or performer looking to expand their boundaries. You want to build up a bigger sound and start building up harmonies as a solo act.
The original Ditto Looper from TC Electronic was a Massive hit with guitarists, thanks to its simple easy to use interface and super compact size. It went on to become one of the bestselling guitar pedals in the world
The new Ditto Mic looper from Sister company TC Helicon, opens this loopy world to singers, instrumentalists, and anyone who amplifies their sound with a mic. Whether you’re a singer, beatboxer or an acoustic performer, if you have the idea you can quickly create a layered masterpiece with ease.
The jewel in the crown of the ditto is its innate simplicity and usability. You don’t need to be a tech guru to get it working. Just use your natural musicality and you’ll get going in no time. With just a loop buton, stop button and loop level control, you can create a full sounding performance.
The Ditto has automatic mic gain, so you can just plug in and get looping. It also has an onboard mic preamp and phantom power so you’ll have no issues with whatever mic you want to use.
With unlimited overdubs and the ability to undo and redo, you can not only correct any mistakes, but vary the performance on the fly by taking out the last section and bringing it back in. What’s more, your latest loop is automatically stored and wont be lost until you delete it; even if you switch off the power.
Here’s what TC Helicon say about the Ditto Mic Looper
The original Ditto Looper, from our sister company TC Electronic, was an overnight sensation because it delivered exactly what musicians were looking for: pure looping without feature fluff. Ditto Mic Looper continues this tradition and further shortens the distance between creative spark and performance by adding automatic mic gain – making setup painless, accidental on-stage bumps a thing of the past and your performance distortion-free. Also loops are stored, meaning that the last fantastic loop you worked on remains in Ditto Mic Looper all ready-to-go, even after you power it down.
Even if you haven’t looped a single musical phrase in your life, you’ll still love Ditto Mic Looper. Here’s why:
Press LOOP to record. Press again to play the loop. Repeat for endless overdubs. Hold to undo/redo latest overdub.Press STOP to pause all loops, press again to resume play – or hold it for a quick, noiseless erase.It’s just that simple. As a singer, beatboxer, horn-blower, or string-player, the power and musical ease afforded by Ditto Mic Looper cannot be overstated. Even the faintest musical idea can be explored, built up, torn down and just plain enjoyed in private, practice or performance. However you use it, Ditto Mic Looper is the perfect way to evolve your craft.
Wouldn’t a single-switch pedal be the simpler approach – save space and just have one button for everything? Actually, no. The dedicated STOP switch on Ditto Mic Looper means that you can pause your loop exactly when and where you want it, without fudging your timing by having to double-tap to stop. Also, holding down STOP to erase won’t cause any unwanted playback – as on most single-switch pedals. While some one-button loopers claim to offer noise-free erase, they do it by slowing the reaction time of the LOOP switch so it only plays when you release the switch, which can seriously mess with your groove! Finally, on Ditto Mic Looper you get to decide the order of the LOOP switch actions – Record/Play/Overdub or Record/Overdub/Play – to suit your personal style.
With Ditto Mic Looper, you’ll always have the strength in numbers. You can create anything, be everything at once. Construct anentire choir with your voice, turn violin into symphony, or create the biggest brass band on Earth with your trumpet. When inspiration strikes you only have to do what comes naturally, Ditto Mic Looper makes sure of that.
