You gotta check this out before I talk about it:

ditto-looper-perspAs Tore Mogensen, product manager for Guitar at TC Electronics was quoted in the press release I just got:

“At TC HQ we really wanted to understand looping before we went to market with Ditto Looper,” says Tore Mogensen, Product Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic, and continues: ”I mean, people do amazing things with looper pedals, but you almost need a degree in rocket science to make sense of all the functionalities. I think Ditto Looper is going to find its way into the heart of guitarists everywhere quickly. It’s non-intimidating, super-simple and intuitive, has a great price, sounds killer and does what you want right out of the box.”

Notice that I bolded “It’s non-intimidating.” That’s exactly what I’ve felt about looper. I got a simple BOSS LoopStation awhile back, which is a really nice looper, and one of the more simple loopers on the market. But even being relatively simple, it still came with a pretty thick users manual! I have a busy life, and I use most of my spare time to gig or record. I don’t have a lot of time to read a manual, and with the thick manual, I was admittedly a little intimidated.

After I read the press release, my first reaction was, “Holy S%&t! That is something that I can use NOW!” One knob? Check. One button? Check. Made just for guitar? PERFECT!

I’ve been wanting to do some looping during my solo gigs, so I could add some instrumental guitar. I tried using the LoopStation for awhile, but I could never get the hang of it because I used a footswitch along with the pedal, and kept on forgetting which one activated which feature. But there’s no guesswork with a single button.

Yup, I’m definitely going to check this one out!
