Which Octave Up pedal has the least latency?

    Which Octave Up pedal has the least latency?

    Right now I have the Micro Pog and it is too slow. I need less latency. Every other aspect is secondary to the latency.

    TCE Sub N Up has no noticeable latency in the Poly setting.

    The Bass Whammy or H9 are my top picks

    I have the Bass Whammy, POG-2 and the PitchFork (also the PS-6 and OC-3, but I don't count those as true octavers). I do not really notice any latency, but certainly the Whammy seems to have very similar performance (tone and latency wise) to the EHX octavers. I also have a VoiceLive 3, which has an octaver, but that definitely has noticeable latency to my ears.

    I use the EHX Bass Micro Synth, and it has an octave up that has zero latency. The sub octave has a very very small amount, but I have not noticed any with the up.

    I've never detected any latency on my Mooer Tender Octaver, but since it's a Micro Pog clone I'd feel just a little silly recommending it without the disclaimer as such.

  7. Bass Whammy gets it done for me. It isn't possible for a digital octaver to have zero latency, that's just physics.

    Same with the TonePrints I have tried...
    the Classic setting is to reproduce the older style Octave pedals--so I think they built in at least a slight bit.

    I can't speak for others, but I have the Bass Whammy and it has unnoticeably low latency.

    I'm very happy with my Fishman Fission. Sold my BWhammy after I got it, although it wasn't because of latency. It was because the Fishman has a dry out. I was always pleased with the Whammy latency.

    IIRC Eventide and Digitech both track quickly and feel a bit more responsive than the POG2 I used to own. IMO the only way to get to no latency is to go analog at the cost of clarity of the octave up tone.

    I wonder why you never noticed the latency ... turn the dry signal off and try again.
