    Anybody have any thoughts on these:

    Granny Puker
    Pollyanna octave
    Robot Devil

    I really dig what little I heard of the Pollyanna, but I see almost no mention of it around here.

    Any other suggestions to do some form of the ol' Dirty/Squarewave/Octave/Synth???

    That initially got my interest sparked, but I haven't heard enough of the positives on her. You gots one?

    I actually have the tour box one here at my house. I filmed a video but it was all dark and messed up and am hoping to do another one today. It's not really my speed, but I'm not sure any 'dirty octaves' really are... but your post made me think of it.

    The Aguilar Octamizer can get nice and dirty with the filter knob cranked.

    I've heard good things about the MXR Bass Octave Deluxe too.

    Boss OC-2 with the synth mod (or even without it if you slam it with GAIN!)
    EHX BMS with squarewave and oct MAXED!
     
  7. not sure if it's square,but i use ehx octave multiplexer,and i really love it.
    it does glitch a bit in the lower register(unless you play staccato),but in the upper register it sounds WICKED
    + cool 'sub switch' option-when 'off' you get a neat fuzz on the lower octave only..

    Earthquaker Devices bit commander is dirtier than this demo makes it seem. and it's low octaves are best high register, but you don't have to use the octaves, the ""bit'' is the non octave effect, and the upper is upper harmonics, brings even more brightness
    Earthquaker Devices Bit Commander On Bass - YouTube I'm using one in a blender 50/50.
