Paul Banks uses two pedalboards when playing alongside RZA as [Banks & Steelz](http://equipboard.com/band/banks-steelz). This photo is of his smaller side pedalboard, which appears to be dedicated to pitch shifting and looping. His TC Electronic Ditto Looper pedal can be seen in this photo, and judging by its size and shape it appears to be the standard, mono version of the Ditto. This photo was taken at the Banks & Steelz Official 2016 ACL Fest Late Night Show at Antone's in Austin TX on Fri October 7, 2016.more
On [this page](http://www.tcelectronic.com/paul-gilbert/) of TC Electronic's website, it lists the Ditto Looper as one of the products used by Paul, and includes a quote of him, saying, "If I could travel backward in time to meet my younger self... I'd bring a Ditto Looper and say, 'Practice with this pedal. It will help your playing enormously, and you'll have a great time."more

An amazingly simple looper made by guitarists - for guitarists.
Ditto Looper is the looper you try once and love for life. TC Electronics have taken all that is good about loopers, trimmed away all the non-essential, mood-killing tech hoopla and ended up with a looper that is intuitive, tons of fun, sounds great and doesn't break the bank.
Its 'one knob' button may seem like a minimalist approach, but all the essentials are there: record, undo/redo, stop and erase are all accessed via different foot-commands that always make sense, whether you are building loops, changing from one part to the next (we're looking at you, live performers) or adding layers to a song. Tone quality should still always be priority number one so that's why the loops produced are in 24 bit uncompressed high quality audio.
Make looping as easy as 1-2-3. No hassle or needlessly complicated stuff, Ditto Looper is boiled down to the essentials and makes control intuitive yet flexible, so guitarists can focus on what matters most: playing and performing. You press once to record, press once again to play the loop. Press once to add another layer of sounds (something you can keep repeating until you run out of ideas). You press and hold to Undo a layer and press and hold again to Redo. Press twice to stop, after which you can press and hold to clear the loop.
The Ditto Looper has a ton of great features aside from its simple layout and controls. It provides 5 minutes of looping time which is more than you'll ever need and unlimited overdubs. It has an ultrasmall footprint and takes up almost zero space on your pedal board, saving you precious realestate. It's great for quickly getting rid of parts you aren't feeling, but it's been found that many people actually use this to change parts during live performance, say from verse to chorus Ditto works great in either scenario. The single knob allows you to set the level of your loops as a subtle background or a mindblowing performance.
In addition the Ditto Looper always let's your ˜dry sound' pass without ever converting it to digital, keeping your original tone just that original and purely as you intended it coming through with zero latency. And when it's bypassed, it's REALLY off. The Ditto Looper also stores your loops when you power down or disconnect the power plug. This means absolutely zero worries, as the music you've created stays stored and is ready to go when you need it whether you're just jamming on ideas, rehearsal, live performance or studio.
Note: Power supply sold separately.
SmAllmighty looper ! I owned a Boss RC3 and sold it two days after buying it. Not because it was a bad pedal, but mostly because i needed a straight looper with no other functionalities than looping. And that's the main reason i bought the Ditto looper : easy to use, small enclosure (fits any pedalboard)... I use mine for practice and also in live situations with my band. Great pedal !
This pedal it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. It's simple and precise. Tap, rec. Double tap, stop. Tap, play. Tap again, record again. Dub, dub, dub, done. Double tap and hold, erase. You can seriously get that down in one sit with this cat. The only, and I mean ONE AND ONLY, thing I have to say about DITTO is that I'd like for it to have an option of overdubbing right after you finish your first round. For example: I do a base for an intro and I'd like to record the intro solo that enters on the very first beat of the base, that I can't do. There's at least a second of delay after you can press it again to record the first overdub. Then you have to wait for the whole base to finish the loop and start the recording from the first beat again. Outside of that, it's just perfect! Ah, and since it's so small I decided to take off the volume knob, I kept kicking it by mistake on the berserk of a solo and screaming the looped base over my lead or practically muting it outta nowhere, it just solved it right away.
I bought this to up my bedroom playing game.
Let me tell you, it was the best $99 I've ever spent on equipment! Layering stuff has really really improved my rhythm playing etc. and it's been great for layering synth bits (especially on mono ones!)
The interface is crazy intuitive and didn't take long to get used to. While this thing doesn't have many features, it does everything really well. The true bypass is fantastic, and the output quality is great...it's better than some loopers I've used in the past.
I highly recommend this little dude!
It's intuitive 1-switch-1-knob interface is the best you'd want in live and rehearsal situations. Couldn't be more simple to use and fits any pedalboard. Perfect tool for power trios, composing and studying. Only downside: Can't store - I mean, you record, it's stored and it has ram to keep it stored for the next time you plug your pedalboard. What you can't do is record more than 1 loop and switch between them - You have to re-loop everytime you go to a different melody/song. Not a problem, just a characteristic: It is a step on, no frills and gadgets looper.
if youre thinking about getting a simple looper this is the one to get!!! personally i hate the jam man looper and i almost never used it because it was kinda more trouble than it was worth but the ditto is freaking awesome. its everything you need and nothing you don't.
I had a Boss RC-3 as my first loop station. Great pedal. But what I really noticed was that the main use I made of this pedal was putting it in my suitcase traveling around or in small gigs playing alone. So I realized that lightness and smallness were a plus, and I went to this Ditto Mini Looper.
A pedal that really is a TC Electronic masterpiece.
Positives: The simple interface means it is unlikely to be confused and in addition, the addition on a USB allows you to store loops on a computer to play back, a handy tool for live use.
Negatives: There are a few negatives but really it isn't the end of the world especially for a pedal of this size. One would be the way in which you pause the loop. The double press of the footswitch could be a challenge but in a practice context it doesn't matter. The other issue would be a lack of the comforts of other loopers such as fade outs and overdubs beginning at the start of the loop. These again are just wishful thinking for a looper of this size.
Overall, I would recommend this pedal for just doing the simple thing you want, looping. Nothing more, nothing less.
A very limited looper pedal, but great for beginners or someone who doesn't need something too fancy. However, if you're merely exploring, I wouldn't recommend buying a new one or buying one at all if you can help it. Borrow a friends or otherwise avoid. If you have as much fun as I did, you'll soon crave the ability to save your loops or line up loops together.
This thing is brilliant. You've definitely read about it already. Its small, works, and is easy to use. You'll need to practice your foot tapping to master using it, but that's an easy sacrifice for all the space it saves you.
The Ditto Looper has a very limited recording time compared to its bigger (and expensive) brothers such as the Boss RC-30. This little pedal is toneful, extremely intuitive and easy to use and, well, will save your wallet.
A simple, easy-to-use and reliable looper.
I was like "Only one switch and a knob? You've gotta be kidding me!" But this little box surprised me. You need no more to create music and play it over and over. Fun is guaranteed.
Got one of these since it was the only looper I could afford. It's very straight-forward. Just tap on the switch the get a loop going and tap it again to stop. I think you can layer up to 6 recordings but I will need to test that more. The volume dips once you playback a loop you recorded. Wish there was an option for a count-in click before recording, since I always mess up the timing. I have to guess by ear.
Works as advertised and I love the small form factor on my board. My only complaint is that the single foot switch control is awkward for certain functions and requires a lot of practice to perfect for use in any sort of performance environment.
I was using my tc flashback as a looper, but the function was just so confusing, now this gives me the opportunity to rerecord overdubs and things like that so i don't have to start over everytime i mess up
I was looking for a looper pedal for quite some time, and tried a few of them at the store. This one really stands out for being so tiny, and yet it gives you everything all the other looping pedals give you, all without taking your hands off of the guitar. The only feature that you may find elsewhere is control over tempo, meaning having a loop and recording X amount of bars with the metronome. I really don't need this feature since I don't ever use it live except for ambient soundscapes, so for me the simplicity and compactness just won over. I highly recommend this pedal to anyone, be he/she new or experienced, since it will add a ton of new possibilities for writting and practicing, as well as endless fun by trying new stuff.
It really is the looper i needed, just straightforward looping with awesome 24bit quality and dry analog thru. Undo and redo is awesome and simple, and the ability to unplug it from power, plug it 1 week later and still remember your last loop jam is really killer. I would like to save my loops via the usb port, since it exists. Maybe future firmware brings this feature. Untill then i just record it to my mac straight line in, and sounding killer awesome.
This is the first looper pedal I have ever owned, and while I don't use it much when playing in my band, it is a great practice tool. The controls are pretty straight forward, tap once to record, hold to delete, tap twice to pause, etc. All in all it is a simple, well-built pedal I would reccommend to anyone.
I'm scared it can brake someday. I cannot imagine practicing without this. You can jam, you can record and listen yourself, you can test your gear with it. Simple but usable
