Thought I’d go in a slightly different direction today, and go into the EBS OctaBass Triple Mode Octave Divider. It’s a octave pedal that creates a note one octave below the pitch of the played note. I’ve messed with the Boss OC-2 (not the newer OC-3) and had problems with tracking, but this seems to have improved tracking.
Here is the official description:
The EBS OctaBass is a first-class, all-analog octave divider. It creates a single note one octave below the pitch of the note you play, even recognizing two- or three-note chords. The incredibly fast tracking circuitry lets you play at the speed you want, not at the speed the divider will allow. It has Normal and Octave level knobs as well as a switch that lets you select from three modes: High (synth), Mid (classic divider), and Low (sub-shaking lows).
EBS OctaBass Triple Mode Octave Divider Pedal Features:
* Analog octave divider
* 3 divider modes: High (synth), Mid (classic divider), and Low (sub-shaking lows)
* Recognizes 2- or 3-note chords
* Fast tracking
* Normal and Octave level knobs
I found this video by aledeville where he compares the Boss OC-2, EBS OctaBass and EHX MicroPOG:
