    Are there analog octavers? If so, how do they measure up against the digital octavers such as the octave effect of the Digitech BSW? I have the Digitech and it tracks great. Just wondering if there are equally impressive analog octavers.

    Probably the best way to answer this is to do a search for "octavers" or "octave pedals" and see what people say about analog ones (EBS, Boss OC2, MXR, etc) vs the digital ones (Digitech, Akai Deep Impact, etc).
