    octave up or down?

      The Danelectro Chili Dog is a pretty good octave-down pedal; monophonic, tracking is OK (if a bit glitchy on sustained notes) but it's clean and quite chunky sounding.

        Digital will usually get you polyphonic octave shifting. Analog usually won't. Check before you buy to see if it has the specs you want.

            The Guyatone MO3 (analogue, monophonic) is great for distorted-glitchy-synthy octave down effects.

                OC-2 and guyatone are both really good, but i always liked the Arion Octave for octave down. It can get glitchy , but you can also do cleaner sounds than with the other two

                  Oh also the Behringer PS5 clone (US600 I think, Ultra Shifter/Harmonist). Does all the stuff the PS5 does so harmonizer + pitch shifting from -2 octaves to +2 octaves as well as the Detune setting which is kinda like a chorus but I never really liked that on either pedal.

                      octave up or down?


                      Octave Down. I'm looking for something that gets that "CKYish" thickness.

                      What exactly is the difference between polyphonic and monophonic soundwise? Also is the Chili dog digital or analog?

                        Polyphonic means it can track more than one note so you can play chords, monophonic can only track one note.

                        Don't think they sound different, they just track differently :]

                            The CKY dudes use Boss OC-2s. I have been looking at the MXR Bass Octave Deluxe recently - seems like it would be good for what you are looking for.

                              i did this intro with the oc2, with a comp before it and the geiger counter and a autowah afterwards.

                              the oc-2 is a nice little pedal, does need a comp., as do all octaves

                              the micropog is alot of fun as well
