Good affordable octaver

RangsdorfGuessWho, 02.08.2018
I use this pedal with electric guitar and bass. I think it would also work great with mono synthesizers. I have years of experience as producer/engineer as well as instrumentalist. Now I work in the MI branch. (No affiliation with this brand)

For me, this octaver is best for bass. Adding a compressor pedal before it boosts its note-tracking performance. It can make synth-like bass with the dry tone set to zero, or set the dry tone to unity gain, then dail in a subtle octave for thundering presence. The stop response time is tight enough to avoid sounding like mud.

How well this pedal works depends on the signal it gets. (True for all octavers like this) With the right kind of guitar/bass, it sounds awesome, for example strat or p-/j-bass. A different type of bass I use which already has a solid, explosive low-end and precise treble doesn't profit much from the sub octave - it doesn't complement the tone. In any case with a compressor before it, you can get better performance by tuning the level characteristics of different instruments so the octaver can work at its sweet spot.

I would improve the design of this pedal with a toggle switch to an alternate sub-tone more suited to some instruments or other sonic textures. How about a clipping waveform? (Less low-end, similar perceived "depth" thanks to low-mid harmonic content)

tc electronic Nether Octaver

Nargothrond, 01.10.2018
Hello,

Intended use:
I bought the Nether Octaver (my first octaver), because I've been looking for a long time for the following use, but I've always been too expensive (only now TC models were all down so nice):
I split signals on my ambient board quite often and then mix them together again in the end or lead them into more amps / preamps / power amplifiers. So the plan was to split the signal played in middle or high registers, one of the splits into the octaver (and possibly other effects), then into an extra looper and then into an extra amp. This would have allowed me to continue a played reef as a phantom bass (loop) and move on to the next ...

As far as the plan.

Service:
Super, simple, not the point.

features:
Two sub octaves, no high, analog, simple, Pog2 and SubnUp can do more. But: Not the point, I do not want that.

sound:
The point. Have two models ordered, so no Monday model, since both on different guitars, in different setups had the same mistakes:
- Glitches: Occasionally in the first sub-octave, continuous in the second.
- Breaking the sound: Each after about 1-2 seconds - makes out sounds impossible. NoGo (and no, the noisegate was not on).
- Tracking: Great.
- Sound recognition: scary. Apparently recognizes sounds and others not at all (medium and high registers, slow play, no chords, only single notes used). No-go.
- Sound of the octaves: With the deep hardly perceptible and the less deep sounded quite artificial - both washed out.

Price-performance:
Price would be something of top. Unfortunately not usable, for anyone I think (even without the ambient frippery, which I had planned).

In fact, the others were downgraded TC products but sometimes great (evaluation for the really very successful Prophet Delay follows)!

Conclusion about this:
Not recommended.
