TC Electronic has announce the Ditto X2 Looper, which they describe as the logical heir to the looping throne after the smash hit Ditto Looper. They say that the Ditto X2 Looper houses all the features that made the original Ditto Looper such a runaway hit, while adding key additions such as a two-button UI and effects, based on feedback from the guitar community and TC Electronic's continuous drive to innovate guitar products.
New to Ditto X2 Looper is a stereo I/O and a 2-button User Interface that allows for a dedicated stop/clear footswitch and a button for effects. The FX button allows users to trigger 2 types of loop effects: reverse and ½ speed. In addition, Ditto X2 Looper allows for the import and export of loops on both PC and Mac. Ditto Looper can run backing tracks, keeping all performance essentials neatly in one place.
TC says that Ditto X2 Looper features the same true-bypass, analog dry-through design, ultra-small footprint and 24 bit uncompressed high quality audio as the original Ditto Looper. And like Ditto Looper, Ditto X2 Looper features 5 minutes of looping time, unlimited overdubs and undo/redo functionality.
Tore Mogensen, Business Manager for TC Electronic, told us, "Looking back, we knew we had something special with Ditto Looper, but nothing could have prepared us for the runaway success we've experienced since launch. What we're trying to do with Ditto X2 Looper is basically continue on that wave, while adding some of our renowned innovational spirit after hearing feedback from the guitar community. I'm not a fortune teller or anything, so I'm not looking into a crystal ball, but I'll tell you this: Looping just got even more exciting and I can't wait to see this reflected in live performances around the world!"

Finally a looper that makes sense to me. I always wanted a simple looper with at least 1 minute of infinite overdubbing and with stereio I/O. Might actually buy this one.
