    I used it at a rehearsal last night, and it just sounds great...the synth patches are very useable, and the octave tracks great!

    OK...I was dad set in getting rid of mine cuz I couldn't get the Octave thing figured out. I tune ADADG...is it gonna even be able to work on the low D...all i get is this off-on again type of sound. Can someone post where they have their knowbs set on the thing. I know the mode, or far right know is all the way clockwise. The others I've fiddled around with endlessly and just can't seem to dial it in. can anyone save this thing from it's possible fate?

    i don't really use it down that low. none of the octave pedals i've used sound good below low e. as far as settings, i keep the sens knob at 12:00, the control knob between 10:00 and 2:00 depending on your taste (it controls the level of the octave down note), the range knob completely to the left and of course the type knob on 7.

    If you take the freq of the D (36.71) and divide by two, you get the freq of the octave: 18.35

    That's below most effects/amps/hearing ranges. A lot of pedals only handle notes between 20Hz and 20KHz.

    Thats why:

    OK...I'll keep it up for grabs then. I really thought the D string was to low...it gives me this funky sounding type thing when I try it,.
