    I'm looking for an octaver that will:
    • Not glitch out as a note sustains
    • Be able to octave high notes (unlike my current OC-3)
    • Retain clarity when processing low notes
    Any recommendations?

    Your OC3 should be able to octave everything if you adjust the range knob all the way up.

    But if you want clear and nonglitchy low notes you'll have to go with something like the POG. The OC3 is digital so it should do solid lows, but the tone doesn't have the clarity of the POG types. That said, the tone out of POGs on the lows isn't *fantastic* most of the time...

    TC Electronic Sub 'N' Up Octave Pedal gets good reviews, I cannot comment since I haven't used it but like I mentioned, it seems to be good. Check on youtube to hear/listen to what it does and this way you'll have an idea on what it can do.

    Weird! I never noticed that, but then again I do almost nothing above the 14th fret of the G string!! Who does? =0)

    Well, I tend to when using an octaver. You can kind of remedy this issue by plugging into the guitar input, but then you lose a whole heap of clarity when playing low notes.
