shoot me for not doing a search - i'm not much of an effect guy (for bass) i'm in the position of having to play a great tune (stevie wonder's "boogie on reggae woman") the bass synth part in this is pretty distinctive, and doenst sound right with just a plain jane bass tone. i tried out the boss bass synth and got a very convincing tone, but i dunno if i want to shell out 2+ bills for one song. sam ash only had an old very beat up oc-2 (i hear they have released the oc-3) is there an oc just for bass by boss or are the oc-2 and oc-3 multipurpose? anyhow, the one i tried gave me a usable tone for the tune as well. i was very wierded out by how much the octave "channels" oscillated. it wasnt subtle at all, but sounded very very synth like. it really sounded like there was something wrong with the pedal. it sounded cool as a synth, but not at all what i would have expected. i was expecting just a straight octave sound without all that warbelly oscillation. is that normal for the oc-2? 'scuse my ignorance here kids. he'p me out.
