Great sound and easy to use

07.06.2014
Possible to get both a nice deep octave, or an octave with a nice roar to it. The knobs are pretty intuitive and the product feels solid.

Tried this with my 5string warwick corvette, and the Octamizer was able to track each note down to about the low F on the E-string. Notes lower than that were sometimes registered, sometimes not. From what I've seen of other octavers, this is very acceptable.

Winner!!!

26.01.2016
Over the years, I have tested several Octave pedals on the market and have finally found the Aguilar Octamizer. Do exactly what he is supposed to do. And most importantly: it is done reliably, safely and perfectly.

Here are some reference pedals, which I will not go into more detail:

MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe
EBS Octabass
BOSS OC-2
Electro Harmonix POG & POG 2

Processing:

There is nothing wrong with me. The metal housing is high-quality processed, the potentiometers remain firm, but can be turned easily, the jackbars are pleasantly firm, but not too much. The DC input is standardized and the footswitch clicks loudly and noticeably, so the bright LED should not be recognized (which is very unlikely with this bright, but not glare LED), even on loud stages or noise probers Of the device.
If you want to operate the Octaver with a battery, the compartment provided for this purpose is accessible via a slot on the underside, which can be opened manually by a small screw. And even if the battery should go limp, the bass signal is passed through the gig-saver bypass function without loss of sound.
To get the interior life of the unit, four screws must be removed. To the inner life can be said that everything is clean and accurate, I maintain even perfectly fitting, soldered and processed.

It is also pleasing that the jack jacks and the DC input are on the front of the unit, which saves some space on the pedalboard.

Service:

This is done with the OCTAVE LEVEL controls for the octave and CLEAN LEVEL for the original bass sound. Further nuances can be obtained with the Potis OCTAVE FILTER and CLEAN TONE. The OCTAVE FILTER knob offers the possibility of shaping the octave sound from dark and heavy to the middle and aggressive, while the Poti CLEAN TONE controls the original bass signal between bass and treble.

sound:

First of all, I would like to mention that this is an analog octaver, which means that some octave notes can not be sustained and clearly reproduced from a certain frequency range (which is stepped through a bass). Also several simultaneous sounds like chords or double stops are tabu, as these can not be processed correctly.
However, it is still the case that EVERY analog bass octaver has a problem to play in combination with others or below the deep A, clear and transparent. Is now unfortunately so - so you have to live.

Ultimately, the Octamizer convinced me with its round and full sound, which is very warm, harmonious and balanced. Through different settings, it is quite possible to make the sound of the pedal very different. Whether only smooth, underline the Baslines, aggressive and very bold, or a brachial synth bass sound by turning the CLEAN LEVEL is possible. It can also be combined with other pedals, For example a distortion or envelope filter is possible without problems.
However, like every octaver finger tip feel is required. Because with unclean played notes the tracking unfortunately fails and the usual "wobbling" develops, which for many is a sign of poor quality. With appropriate articulated play, however, the Octamizer works without problems to the deep A, which is in my opinion quite sufficient. However, if you try to reach the deep E, the octaver fails like everyone else.

What more can I say? For me it is the Octaver, I would perhaps upgrade if Aguilar puts the Octamizer in the new form on the mark. Until then, I'll stay with him.
