Today I wanted to talk about the TC Electronic Ditto X2 Looper, and include a great video about some basic tips for doing ambient loops. In the video, Stefan Fast mentions one of my looping heroes – Andy Othling and talks about a simple tip of setting up non-timed drones by looping a portion of silence first. I remember Andy discussing this when he was looping with a Line 6 DL4 and is a fantastic tip if you’re looking at building up drone volume swells. If any of you aren’t familiar with Andy Othling, and want to go down the YouTube rabbit hole, definitely check this guy out here.
Stefan then goes into some of the excellent features available in the Ditto X2 like the ‘reverse’ function with reverses the loop for coolness/weirdness in the loop! And demonstrates the 1/2 speed drop. Both of these effects are controlled via FX toggle switch on the Ditto X2 Looper for selection, and footswitch for activation.
