looking for opinions of what the best tracking octave pedal would be for a 4 string bass.
Not cheap, but the EHX POG should get a look. Octave down, octave up, 2 octaves up. Up octaves with detune. Low pass filter. Great sound clips.
Definatley not cheap but reckoned by many to be the best there is, polyphony is a significant thing and the variety of options is pretty cool.
Have a look at what I just said about my Korg G5 :
Yes, the G5 isn't cheap, and is a synth unit, maybe you don't want it. It's definitively the best octaver I know sa far, though.
I've been pretty impressed with the Boss Oc-3. And I dont normally say things like that about Boss pedals.
Agreed. One is going to be under my tree on Christmas, for sure. Feel like a kid.
I've been thinking about an octave pedal as well -- particularly an octave up that you can add distortion or fuzz to. Thoughts? Also, is octave up or down "better" on bass, or is it just personal taste?
Well, as with most stuff, I think it's what floats your particular boat. For octave down, though, you want to be sure that your speakers can handle it.
But, if you have the coin, you don't need to pick up OR down. The POG can do both at the same time. And more. There's really nothing else like it.
I agree with the POG, although I find the high octaves make the sound much more like an organ than a bass (unless you get just the right mix of the octaves). However when using a distortion with the POG it results in a HUGE sound (great for an instrumental power trio).
