The popularity of the original Ditto Looper prompted TC Electronic to follow it up with the Ditto X2 Looper.

It carries over the same intuitive single-track looping functionality of the original, but adds stereo input/output, USB connectivity and a section for loop effects, complete with a dedicated controls.

The looper section is a straightforward as its compact sibling, with up to 5 minutes total recording time and the same single-knob loop level and single-footswitch controls.

The Loop Effects section lets you switch between half speed and reverse looping effects, and it also allows you to use both at the same time.

Finally, the built-in USB port lets you export and import loops from your computer.

Specifications:

  • Total Loop Time: 300 Seconds
  • Loop Memory Slot: 1
  • Audio Quality: 24-bit A/D/A
  • Input: 2 x 1/4"
  • Output: 2 x 1/4"
  • USB: Mini-B USB 2.0
  • Power: 9V Battery (With 2 Battery Slots), DC Adapter (Optional)
  • Dimensions: 4.44” x 5.31” x 2.13”
  • Weight: 1.13 lbs.

Pros

The TC Electronic Ditto X2 Looper impresses many experts and users with its sound quality and ease of use, including Charles Saufley at Premiere Guitar who said, "the 24-bit loop quality is excellent". It also helps that many are happy with the extra footswitch that can be used as extra loop control.

Cons

Still there are some who expected more in return for the money they spent, and a few reported encountering glitch issues.

Overall

Overall, the TC Electronic Ditto X2 is a great 2 foot-switch upgrade to the original Ditto and other compact loop pedals.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Loopers - Pedals & Tabletop.
