    the X2 has:
    True Bypass and Analog-Dry-Through.
    5 minutes of looping time.
    Undo / Redo function.
    Unlimited overdubs.
    Audiophile approved 24-bit uncompressed high quality audio
    Dedicated Stop/Clear footswitch
    Loop FX (Reverse and ½ speed)
    Import/Export loops from PC/Mac (via USB on rear panel)
    Backing Track – perfect for solo practice and live performance
    Stereo In/Out

    I'm a huge fan of tc, and I'm completely addicted to my original DITTO and my Flashback X4's so obviously I need this too!

    I hate it when they do this ... you buy something and immediately v.2 comes out. :)

  4. Is this out already? Man, I bet so many v1 dittos are about to be for sale.
  5. The dedicated stop switch has me sold. Only thing I didn't like about the original. That double tap threw me off time occasionally.

    This is supposedly being released at NAMM in a few weeks

    Can't wait for all those DITTO v1's to go on sale! I'll buy more!

    How is this hardware different than what's already out there?

    I think the most important thing about this is the casing, which hints at other interesting pedals to come.

    Can't wait to see what else tc does.

    Oh geez, how did I miss that?:hyper:

    Looks like I'm going to have to revise my answer in the "How Much Money Do You Expect To Spend On Pedals In 2014?" thread!

    I've always toyed around with buying a looper just for fun and practice, but all of the ones I saw just had WAY too many features for me. I knew I would never use them all, nor did I want to pay for all those features I would never use.

    I recently saw the Ditto and thought it would be perfect ( I also liked that it had true bypass, etc). However, now that I see the X2, I'm kind of glad I didn't drop the coin and buy a Ditto. I think they've really nailed the perfect enhancements to the Ditto. Just the right improvements, and a few extra features without turning it into a supercomputer. I think I'll buy an X2 for my bass set-up, and perhaps a used version 1 for my guitar set-up. :) I'm pretty excited about it. How is TCE's quality on their pedals? Decent, or should I expect it to crap out after a year or two? I'm so glad I've been frequenting the Effects forum lately!

    I know right?! Well, to be fair I have had my Ditto for about 6 months but still. TC seems to outdo themselves on some of their pedals within a year of the original ones release. Which in a way is pretty cool but sucks because if you want it, you have to spend that money again. I will say that TC def listens to their customers and acts on feedback which is great. I really TC products, wish I had more of them.

    Definite quality. The footswitch on the Ditto in particular is very good, very kight to the touch yet rugged. I would recommend TC to anyone.

    That is good to hear. I'm now GASing pretty hard for one of these. I'll probably end up buying a used Ditto to mess with until the X2 comes out...then drop the used one on my guitar set up. lol.
    Off to monitor the Effects For Sale forum...

    Yeah I'd recommend tc products to anyone, I have 4 of their pedals and I absolutely love them. Super reliable, great sounds. Of all the current mass-market, mass-produced effects brands out there, I'd say they're easily my favorite

    (Hijacking my own DITTO X2 thread with tc praise lol)

    Just got my Ditto in the mail yesterday. Messed with it last night. It is the perfect simple looper. Can't wait for the X2 now. I can really see the appeal of the simple enhancements they've made.
  19. Way cool - I was just reading about the Ditto and thinking I want one, so this is good news to me.

    FYI, Amazon has the Ditto around $98 (usd), which was really close to what I had been seeing them go for used at GC and on TB.

    I imagine when the X2 gets released the used price will drop, but I thought $98 new was worth it (I will keep mine on my guitar set-up after the X2 goes on my bass set-up).
