Boss 0C Octave Pedal
Hi I got the Boss 0C Octave Pedal for Christmas and I don't know how much I like it.. it gets muddy on the low end even though it is in the bass port and I was wondering what styles/ways you guys use/would use it.
My oc-2 doesnt track well after D. Mines usually set oct 2 @0 or off(i never use this) and oct 1 around 1 oclock and direct signal fully on. Though some guys use it for the pure synth sound n turn off the direct signal and have the oct1 on full.
As far as tracking goes, I find it really depends on the instrument that you use it with. I have a couple of basses that it goes a little funny on, and others that it doesn't lose any tightness whatsoever, perhaps something to do with the instrument's own harmonic overtone content?
I think Margot may be talking about the OC-3 considering the 'bass port' was mentioned in the OP (OC-3 has separate Guitar & Bass inputs)
I tried the OC-3 a while ago and was thoroughly unimpressed by it though both posts above offer good advice regarding tracking and muddiness.
I've had my OC-3 for a couple of days and I find that tracking issues can be a bit sporadic. I even had issues with the D, 7th fret on the G string, but only that one note on the G. I find if I play the same D on the D string, 12th fret, there's no issue. I hope this is something that remains consistent with a particular bass, otherwise I'm going to be timid to use this pedal in live situations.
For most applications, I like to use the octave pedal while playing from the 10th fret and higher. I turn the dry signal all the way down, so all you hear is the low note.
with those things you usually want to play up high for better tracking, maybe pan to your neck pick up more and roll some tone off. just suggestions.
Great handle by the way - 'he wrote the f***ing book ok!'
