I don't know of an analogue octaver that will handle notes that low.
To aid the tracking, use the neck pickup and play close to the neck. The more overtones in your signal, the more the octaver will get confused.
Hmmm, I believe that on my basses I get more overtones on the neck pickup and by playing up by the neck. I seem to get better tracking doing the inverse of that...
By keeping the girth an growl low, the MXR seems pretty good down to G, I would actually be fine with it if there was a hi pass in it along with a little boost. Kinda like the dual band compressor concept. That way you could choose how low to go and cut out the glitchy range while compensating for the extra volume added above the cut off... That would be cool. I'm really looking for a clean 'studio' octave similar to the one on Sheryl Crow's 'All I Wanna Do' but in a live setting. And of course I want it to be compact and not require an engineer foe setup :-)
I think I'd know normal if I saw it ... 'Calvin
