    For sale only, DOD Octoplus: $35 shipped conus, paypal or postal MO **SOLD**

    This Octoplus is a super fat octaver with -1oct, dry blend, and tone control of the suboctave(CCW is super fat and round, CW is more hollow and OC2-like). The pedal is in good shape for its age ('83) and the footswitch and battery door are in good working order as well. Sounds great!

    So do the two level knobs provide individual boosts for the octave/dry outputs (rather than just working like a single blend between the two)?

    Thanks!

    Yep.

    When solo'd and set to '10', the 'Octave Level' is at unity with the bypassed signal, and the 'Direct Level' offers a bit of a volume boost when solo'd. When both Octave and Direct levels are at 10, there is a significant volume boost.

    Can it handle more than 1 note at a time?

    Nope, you'll need to look into the digital (and more $$) domain for an octaver with any kind of polyphony. Analog octavers are monophonic, so just one note at a time or it will warble/glitch.

    How well does it track with very low notes, very high notes, different playing styles?

    Thanks!

    It tracks about the same as any other analog octaver; clean playing results in very good tracking, and the lower you go- the less stable it gets. It becomes difficult to sustain notes with the Octoplus (and OC-2/etc) when you start going below the low A. It will track as fast as you can play cleanly and I think it is well suited to different styles of playing, though in my experience analog octavers are not best suited to pick playing-


    Here is a quick clip of the Octoplus I made for someone in the effects forum a while back; it starts with clean+octave in a few settings, and then the solo'd octave (the description lists the different settings heard in the clip).

    Yeah, thats what I thought. Wasn't sure if polyphonic was the correct term.
