    I'm looking for an Octave Up pedal. I don't like Octave Downs-- really annoying. So what's an inexpensive octave up pedal that has good tracking and everything. Thanks!
  2. I use a Digitech BP200 thats got the whammy pedal built in, 1 or 2 octaves up no problem.

    The Boss PS-5 Super Shifter goes up or down 2 octaves, also does harmonies. It tracks well too.

    octave up + fuzz? danelectro french toast.

    otherwise, sticking with dano theme, look for a shift daddy on ebay... inexpensive expression controlled pitch shifter.
  6. Ok, select the 'whammy' effect on the effects menu, then use the middle knob, twiddle it until you get one or two octaves shown on the screen. Now configure the expression pedal to 'whammy' and set the values 0-100. now as you press the pedal down the note will bend up to one or two octaves :D

    Oh yeah, i've scene that, but I want to hear the low and the high note.

    Thanks for the help though!

    Use the Harmony Blend mode with the HOCTUP effect, it will do just that.
    If you don't want to be bothered with the expression pedal, you can do it with the Pitch Shift too, just set it on +12 and adjust levels.
    As a general rule, it's a good idea to read the manual when you get a pedal, especially a multi. Most effects known to man can be produced with them.
  9. Yep, good points about the harmony blend and pitchshifter, I use it in my effects loop so I have the low note too.
