    Pros - versatile with great tone
    Cons - no so far
    You can find more use for these than one might think at first. Just add growl. You don't have to have a stevie wonder or Peter Gabriel song to use this. It thickens up your tone and then you can shape it from there.

    Pros - Awesome octave tone and very versatile.
    Cons - Does not track very well on low notes.
    Best tone from an octave I've come across. Best for playing higher register notes. I use it behind an envelope and fuzz which makes a bass sound like Godzilla.

    Pros - Versatile Octave voicing between growl and girth.
    Midrange frequency selector.
    Great for fretless playing.
    Cons - Takes a bit of finessing to get your desired tone.
    A few tracking glitches (not terrible)
    I have only had this pedal for a few weeks and haven't gigged with it just yet, but from just practicing alone with it, I've come up with some great octave sounds! This is my first MXR product, but it's left a good impression so far. The pedal is sturdy, solid, and ready to go. I enjoy the control between the two ocatave voicings and ability to blend in some clean signal, or just go sub octave synth style with no clean signal. When going completely wet, it takes a bit of tinkering to get the right sound, but once you get it, you're on your way. Additionally the midrange selector is quite useful when you want to stand out a little more. I'm eager to try this out gigging and see how it sounds in a live situation. Overall, I think this is a great little pedal!
