    I have this korg bass ampworks i use to fiddle around, i am not into fx too much, but i like it to get different tones...

    The problem is that the octaver does a weird thing, somehow when i let the notes ring (no matter the note high or low) they ring with the octave on, then after a little while lets say 2-3 seconds the octave goes of for a second and then comes back. Have you got any idea on whats up with this??????

    Sounds like a tracking issue, which, is fairly common in these types of FX. Try putting a mild boost in front of it and see what happens.

    Every octaver is dependent on getting an input signal that is sufficiently strong and unwavering. When your note dies out, it drops in level and usually wavers in pitch.

    Well, like Bongo says, what ever makes you signal more intense.

    For example, when my band plays at lower volumes, I turn on my fuzz unit(with lower fuzz) to feed my synth pedal a 'louder' signal. So anything from a booster to a gain pedal.
