Using the Ditto X2, can I learn by having an instructor play something and then slow it down to work on matching the notes? Yes, TC added tempo control but just half speed for the Ditto X2.
Can I practice soloing with the X2? Yes, this is really one of the main uses of the Ditto X2. It is designed for a guitar or bass player to create their own rhythm and then solo over it.
With the TC Electronic DITTO X2, can I record and play different parts of a song verse, chorus, bridge all during a live performance while not using my hands pedals and footswitches only?

No, this is considered an advanced function that is only available on more expensive and complicated loop pedals. Can I adjust the volume or effects of individual overdubs with the Ditto X2?

However, there is no removable card and there is only one memory slot. Does it have phantom power for a condenser microphone? Yes they do.
