Re: TC Ditto X4

Possibly a better behavior choice for TC would have been:

[ Stopped ] -> Press -> [ Playing but Muted ] -> Release -> [ Playing ]

If you don't release within the hold threshold, it instead erases. How much audio you lose on loop start depends on how fast the switch is (and how fast the switch operator is).

Based on your report, that sounds like what the 360 is doing though it could also be waiting to start playback until Release.

360 clears by holding down the footswitch (no previous loop "chirp"). You bring up a valid point about potential latency, but it's nothing that I have noticed. Digitech Jam Man Express XT has the same operation with no loop clearing issues as well.

Can it run in sync mode — parallel loops, the length of loop 2 as a multiple of loop 1 — and yet not force recording of loop 2 to start on a cycle boundary for loop 1? This is one of the things that annoys me on the Boomerang. When playing with synced EDPs, it just coordinates the loop lengths rather than quantizing to the first loop's cycle boundary.

I see the X4 has a DIP switch controlling record behavior, so maybe this addresses the issue?
