So before you flame me - yes I did a search function and yes I read all the threads available on both. But amazingly no one really answered my question, so I thought I would ask it... I do very simple looping - and really only in one project that I am working with. I am currently using a Boss RC-2 that while functional has a number of things that have begun to bother me. The main thing is that I don't think it sounds that great, that it's not very smart (often it can't figure out what to delete or undo) and not the most stage friendly looper. I seem to be constantly leaning over and fiddling instead of playing - and that is a pain in the arse. So I'd like to get a new looper - my main concerns are simplicity, fidelity and ease of use. Cash is a secondary concern. Size is pretty important too. So I've narrowed down to the Ditto and Ditto x 2. I read all the threads and yet I wasn't really able to decide between the two of them from those threads. The FX on the X2 are meaningless to me. At least right now. Maybe I will think differently in a few months but for now meaningless. The 24 bit audio in the x2 - what does the normal Ditto have? Does anyone know? If the X2 is 24 bit, uncompressed and the normal Ditto is not AND it has a dedicated stop/erase footswitch that sells me on it right there. For those of you who have both - is the X2 overkill or do its features really come in handy? To those of you who bought a Ditto over the X2 - why? Many many thanks.
