The Ditto JAM X2 Looper features TC Electronics cutting edge proprietary BeatSense technology, making it the first looper pedal ever to automatically keep your loops from drifting out of sync. TC Electronics state-of-the-art algorithm is able to snip, stretch and compress each beat of your loop dynamically to your tempo while still maintaining audio quality. This means your Ditto JAM X2 automatically stretches the loop by a couple of milliseconds to make it fit the pocket so your performance is always nice and tight.
For the first time ever, you can loop with your band in real-time without having to sync with a MIDI clock, letting you make it up as you go, without drifting out of rhythm. It’s like having an invisible band member onstage with psychic powers. Top that, Dr. X!
Built-in microphones and an included clip-on mic allows Ditto JAM X2 to listen to its surroundings, separate background noise from the rhythmic elements of your band and sync up.
Connecting the included mic under a snare or on a percussion instrument, leaves the job of timekeeping to your drummer so you and your bandmates are free to play without constantly having to stay in sync with a fixed loop!
A toggle switch lets you jump between recording, playing your loop back, or recording the loop and going straight to filling out the sonic space with your sweet overdubs.
This gives you total control over how you want to create your loops, so you can unleash that Magnum (Lo)opus masterpiece that's been simmering in the back of your mind!
The simple layout is streamlined to remove clutter, ensuring that nothing gets in the way of your musical inspiration.
Dedicated footswitches for looping and stopping make it easy to keep your grooves tighter than an '80s spandex suit.
With its ability to lock onto the beat of your drummer or bass player, Ditto JAM X2 is the ideal solution for live looping with a band.
It can be difficult to perfectly time your foot presses to make those seamless loops – we are human after all – so BeatSense mode comes to your rescue and tightens up your loop point timing by quantizing your Record and Playback footswitch taps to the nearest detected beats.
You just wait for the right moment, tap Loop as close to a downbeat as you can, play some groovin’ chords and then tap again to make the perfect loop. Now take a solo over top. Solo some more.
Overall an impressive pedal, it's proprietary loop technology unfortunately isn't foolproof as we've had reports that 'off beat' drum tracks can catch it out. Still, overall, a solid looper effects pedal.
