    I want sound clips!

    Why does that sound both illegal AND dirty?

    I got my Octron today, its great! The octave down sounds pretty similar to other pedals, the octave up is far clearer than a Roger Mayer Octavia and there's two octave up modes: the clear one and a fuzzier one(sounds like an octavia).

    I'm not using it on bass, rather on a guitar. There'll be clips in the following days of it on a guitar if you want to hear it. http://runbeerrun2.tripod.com

    When did you guys get on the list and how long did it take for you to get your pedals?!?!?

    I got on about a month ago, just wondering how long I'm going to be waiting.

    Oh and don't but the pedal if you are on the list and your name comes up... that will just speed up the process for me :smug:

    Yep, the three knobs are octave up, direct, and octave down. There's internal trim pots for dirty/clean settings.

    No there is not a clean octave up. The octave up sound is dirty. An upper octave in an anolog pedal design is the result of distortion. If you want a clean upper octave harmony, you need to use a digital pedal, like the Whammy or POG.
