My immediate use will be in front of an EHX B9.
Analog octave up is basically a fuzzy ring mod sound from frequency doubling - it doesn't really need to "track" like an octave down (frequency divider) does. The Octron has one, the COG T65 has one, and they both have blend options and sound cool. Other pedals that do it, like the EQD Tentacle or Lovepedal Believe, don't have controls at all! They just do their thing!
The Micro POG is digital. Digital is however the way you want to go if you want a clean octave up.
After reviewing the features of a few pedals, the utilitarian EHX Pitchfork looks like the best fit for me. Opinions?
I've got a pitchfork and use it quite a bit. I can't really compare with other units, but it tracks pretty darn well. I also really like that it has an expression in.
I use the newer Digitech Bass Whammy for octaves up and down. Oh, and whammy.
That's digital as well, so long as you're fine with that.
Also digital but the Mooer Tender Octaver is very good for the price.
I just got the Octave 2 from Mr Black. It has an octave up and down with a blend knob. So far I really like it. I get almost a organ sound with the right mix. When I push it with my Xotic BB Pre amp into my wah, I get incredible tones. Throw in the EBS octabass before the BB and I feel like I'm inviting the Devil into my house.
