    Anyone see the up and coming "Ditto" Looper from TC Electronic?

    Single knob, mini enclosure. Looks like it could be great for simple looping with small real estate.

    Looks like more info will be out at NAMM.

    UPDATE: from Tore later in this thread ----

    Where did you see this? A google search yielded no results... other than your post.

    Looks fun, will probably hit it. I like the TC gear, smart, cheap, sounds great.

    Relevant to my interests. Looking forward to reading reports about it.

    I'm sure there's someone for whom a no-features-whatsoever looper is a great tool. That person is not me.

    Well. we don't know anything about the features, I bet the switch has several function switch/hold/double switch etc, but for me a simple loop in a small enclosure may be a lot of fun and very musical. I wouldn't need it to scaffold up a whole arrangement, maybe just repeat a key phrase or add some confusion to a lead break.

    I think it is similar to a EHX Freeze pedal.

    I figure you could get 3 or 4 functions out of one switch: record, play, stop, then double tap to erase and reset just like the X4 looper. Maybe double tap while playing to overdub? (that'd be 5)

    The big question is length. Even the 40 seconds in the X4 is shortish for me, and if you're overdubbing it's less than that. I'd want 60 seconds including overdubbing...

    The url in that ad doesn't work. Searching ditto on their website yields nothing.

    A freeze or hold function would be cool.

    A standalone version of the Flashback looper would be awesome, especially in that size enclosure.

    I though the Freeze was more of a sustain to hold single notes/chords than actually loops.

    The Feb 2013 issue; it has The Who on the cover

    I'm guessing they'll wait until after NAMM to post specs/clips :huh

    I'll be at NAMM, so I'll check it out and report back :aok :beer

    Somewhere between this and the Boomerang would be great.
    Actually, if Boss had increased the fidelity of the RC-30 to 24bit, and maybe tweaked the buffer instead of adding crappy drum tracks and effects, I'd be ecstatic.

    That's funny, I just grabbed my Guitar World from the mailbox and this was the first page that happen to open when I threw it on my couch. I was just doing a google search on it which led me here. I'm looking forward to this one as well.
