Anyone have any samples with a bass running through it?
tried one once, it was pretty much unuseable on bass... too much lower octave with no blend. Maybe with an LS2 it could work?
I love mine with bass. 8-bit sound ahoy!
not too much low for your amp??
Sound clip pleeeeeeeaseeeeeee!!!!
Aren't BlueBox's are an octave above? Or do you mean that the original signal is too 'up front'?
The Blue Box produces a signal one and two octaves below the original. However, if you put the blend control mostly to the original octave side, it just makes lots of weird fuzzy noises. It also helps to play very high notes (relative to normal bass stuff). I don't know how useful the pedal is, but I often steal one from my guitarist. It makes a really intense organ type of sound, or it can make Atari noises. I love it. Sorry, no samples. I suppose I could go make one, though...
Huh.. i could've sworn mine went an octave up.. oops!
..just checked the MXR site. Right you are, but it says '2 octaves
down' and that's it.. nothing about 1 octave.
Is it possible that the original issues (mine's a first-run script logo)were different?
You know, it probably does only do two octaves down. It's hard to tell since it makes so much fuzzy noise. Looks like we were both a bit wrong. Anyway, I'm working on some samples right now. Nothing fancy, but they should help.
Alright, I think I got a workable sample done. It's played in a very high register to avoid any ugliness. The first part is obviously clean (for comparison). The second part is done with the blend all the way right, and the third part is with the blend in the middle. Notice that the low notes at the end sound like pure noise. I decided not to record it with the blend all the way left, as it sounds like total crap.

Where to buy?
has anyone else tried a dod buzz box? i bought mine NOS for 40 bucks last month and i love it, its similar to the mxr blue box, but much less tame
I don't think I would want anything less tame than the Blue Box. It's already pretty fuzzy. You should be able to get one through any MXR dealer, but they will have to order it for you. No one has them in stock. No one wants to buy them.
