I use the same settings as above on my OC2, works nicely to fatten things up a bit when you want to add texture or fill some space when others are soloing etc. It's actually one of my most used pedals come to think of it.
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?

How low down are you going with it? I never go lower than an A or G# on the low E when the octaver is on, to me those frequencies an octave lower are mud regardless of how they're being played. I don't think I've ever heard an octaver designed to play well at such low notes. If it's getting muddy before a B or so, then it might take a little bit of eq work to fix it. My own sound is more mid-range to treble based with an average amount of bottom to it, so the octaver just adds a little more roundness to the tone.
