NAMM 2015: TC-Helicon introduces the Ditto Mic Looper  

TCdittolooerTC-Helicon is excited to announce Ditto Mic Looper, the follow-up to their best-selling FX pedal, perfected by TC-Helicon to fit all vocalists and mic’ed instruments.

Ditto Mic Looper is the perfect looping pedal for singers, beatboxers and acoustic performers who want to realise a layered masterpiece quickly and easily. With just a Loop button, Stop/Erase button and an oversized loop level control, performers can build any idea into a full-sounding performance instantly, while unlimited overdubs and undo/redo features helps to bring the vibe up and down. Plus, the last loop is automatically stored – even when the unit is turned off!

Main Features include:
-Easy setup with automatic mic input gain. Just plug in and loop.
– Dedicated Loop and Stop/Erase switches
– Pristine mic pre-amp with phantom power
– Mic Control™ – allows control directly from (optional) TC-Helicon MP-75 or Sennheiser e835 FX microphones

It’s the innovative engineering inside Ditto Mic Looper that makes setup painless and means you never have to worry about input levels again. No more trial-and-error to find the optimal balance between input gain on your FX unit and the mixing desk. Using Ditto Mic Looper is exactly like plugging a mic directly into the PA – you only need to set input gain once, at the mixer.

While the original Ditto Looper took the one-button approach, Ditto Mic Looper features both a dedicated LOOP and STOP/ERASE switch. The dedicated STOP switch on Ditto Mic Looper means that users can pause their loops with surgical precision instead of having to double-tap. Similarly, holding down STOP to erase won’t cause any unwanted playback – as on most single-switch pedals. And while some one-button loopers claim to offer noise-free erase, they do it by slowing the reaction time of the loop switch so it only plays when you release the switch, which can seriously mess with your groove!

Ditto Mic Looper carries with it the high-fidelity hallmark of the entire Ditto family: 24-bit uncompressed (and uncompromised) audio. Paired with a great-sounding mic preamp and phantom power to boot, users can pick and choose between their favorite dynamic and condenser mics.

Singers not comfortable with a pedal can simply plug in a Mic Control™ enabled microphone to the Ditto Mic Looper and experience the creative freedom of creating, playing, stopping, undoing and erasing loops directly from the mic.

The TC Ditto Mic Looper is expected to be available from February 2015.
