Ditto X2: returning it

VenomboyVenomboy Posts: 3,459
Ive been wanting one of these for years. Arrived last Friday. Sending it back tomorrow. 

I like what it does. Just hate the sound. On a dirty channel in front of the amp when I play over a track there’s just mud. Part of this might be because of the noise gate from my GMajor I run in the loop of my Framus Cobra. When I shut off the gate I get a bit more clarity. I’m not gonna run this pedal in stereo into 2 amps. It’s not a whole lot better thru my clean channel. Maybe it just hates my amp. 

Im probably going to replace it with a Source Audio Lunar Phaser. 

I might also build build a new board for my incoming amp

    I have a ditto, and I find it usable only for clean or very slightly crunchy tones. However, it's possible to play with gain over a sampled clean pattern, though: you just have to put the ditto in the fx loop so its output is not affected by the preamp.

    Yeah... not feasible for me. Really bummed because I was looking forward to this pedal.

    Yeah, IMO loopers should be in the effect loop or not at all. If you layer the same notes or harmonics on top of each other with a bit of gain they can turn totally to mud. It doesn't happen nearly as much in the effects loop (but it does a bit if you're getting into tube saturation).

    That's just the think I thoug every time I watch a YTB video.

    I think you sould do some AyB wiring to another amp system, so you'll need two complete rigs for a proper use, in the case of a non clean backing guitar.

    I can understand being used by Steve Morse (i.e., like I see him with DP), but in real life, not usable.

    Better a tinny mp3 player into the PA.
