Hey Y'all, I've got a BFX-708 (first generation) that meets all of my minimal effects needs (with the addition of a Boss LS-2 line selector for bypassing & mixing with the original signal) with one exception. Its octave-up tone (accessed as "pitch shift") is miserable. It warbles and "beats" against the original signal like a just painfully enough out-of-tune guitar playing along with the bass. I'm satisfied with the capabilities of the other effects (octave down, synth, etc.) and it fulfills any "effects jones" I get without costing too much and keeping my pedalboard simple (wireless, tuner, multifx, LS-2 & DI). Do any of the newer generation inexpensive bass multieffects (BFX708-II or Digitech BP200) do the octave up effect in a better (i.e. actually usable) manner? If I get any answers that they do then I'll go to GC and try them out (I don't want to waste a trip if they just don't cut it at all - I'll just live with my 708 and wait for the next generation of stuff to see how it does). Thanks!
