Sub ’N’ Up or Balls drop?
Emile Michel Hobo, 08.04.2020
Officially it’s called the Sub ’N’ Up octaver, but in practice it does provide you with a sound that will make your balls drop.

The tone print setting is nice, because it allows you to try different types of octavers with different effects added to them, like basic drive and added chorus or vibrato, that allow you to craft your own sound.

The one downside to me on the poly or classic setting, is that the EQ limits the range within which the octaver adds the SUB 2, SUB, and UP to your signal. In the toneprint setting your can turn this off, opening up the full range, but when playing my mouth harp with the fixed poly or classic settings, the octaver doesn’t respond to the higher tones in the higher octaves, so I have to use the toneprint setting to add the SUB 2 and SUB, with only a bit of UP.

I would prefer to be able to turn the limiters off for the poly and classic mode as well in terms of frequency response.

Great tone but won't work on a battery
FuzzySham, 27.06.2020
Really good sounding octave pedal, very fun to play. Especially the "vintage" octaver setting, sounds badass. Balanced sound and fast response.
The tone print editing is ok. It's fun for a while but not a lot of extra effects. You can add stuff like delay / chorus / reverb. So you can get either an octaver or a vibey surfer tone. For the money that's good though.
The only complaints are:
1. The battery power is a gimmick. It will discharge in 30 minutes
2. It doesn't look cool and has cheap plastic knobs

tc electronic Sub'n'Up Octaver
Shahab Tolouie, 21.02.2017
this is a phenomenal pedal. many compare these to EHX micro POG. since I have owned both I can say they certainly aren't the same.
while micro POG is a beast of its own and a wonderful octave generator, to my ears it has slower tracking specially on lower tones. on high notes it produces the classic glitching tone which makes it suitable for dirty sounds and that's where it shines best.
on the other hand since I use this pedal in a very unconventional manner, I needed a very natural sounding octaver with less to no glitches and the Sub'n'Up Octaver exactly does that.
also instead of having both high and low signals in one pedal, I decided to separate them by using Sub'n'Up Octaver particularly for low octaves (sub1 and sub2) and for high octave I use Digitech Mosaic which is a specialized high octave generator.
now I have far more natural sounding octaves with complete control over the high and low tone and can switch from sub octave to octave above without bending or taking my hand off the fretboard :-)

Genaue was ich wollte und mehr
Johncwok, 10.05.2019
I bought this pedal after aquiring the "nether octaver" which i found absolutely not satisfying (frequent tracking issues).
I have to say I am very statisfied, The polyphonic mode tracks really well and allows you to play chords which is quite amazing. The toneprint mode lets your guitar sound like an orgamon.
This wont transform your 6 strings guitar into a 12 strings, but it does pretty good job, the only thing I could say is that the output sometimes lacks of "definition" (i don't have a better word to describe it), it seems that it sometimes is difficult to distinguish the sounds of the different strings, depending on how your play with the knobs. But I am being picky here.
