Relics produce tone, and then some...

I have really become dependant on my Ditto Pedal, so much that it unnerves me when I have to work on other things.

I am recording chord progressions that I can practice every position with and the last one just came together so nicely with several guitar overdubs that I am having trouble erasing it.

May be time explore the looper in my Flashback pedal, did not occur to me til I posted this.... now if I could figure out how to use the looper and delay at the same time??!!

I have a Ditto looper, but I've been working on playing rhythm and lead at the same time as seamlessly as possible.

It can be challenging in a solo instrumental jazz guitar setting. I'm already good at doing this in the context of rock, country, rockabilly and blues guitar.

That said, I STILL need to use my looper pedal for soundscapes and other stuff.

How do these compare to my Boss RC-2? Curious because I want something a little simpler to use.
Anyone have experience using both?

I've got them both.

The difference is that the RC-2 will correct the timing and segment of the loop whereas the Ditto records exactly the segment you created which can result in a 'hiccup'.

But if you practice and develop the ability to hit the Ditto just right it is fine.

"the last one just came together so nicely with several guitar overdubs that I am having trouble erasing it".

Why don't you record the loop that you made either by micing your amp or using something like a Tascam or Zoom recorder? Then you can save it to your computer, tablet or phone and always have it to play to. If you don't have those capabilities, then sorry - I got nuthin'.

...or plug your ditto into your computer and just copy the audio over?
