Well, after a six month love affair with the Micro POG, I've decided to move on. I loved being able to dial in the organ sound (especially with my Dynacord CLS-222 Leslie simulator), but ultimately it wasn't enough. The sub octave on the Micro POG is great, but it's a little too hifi. The octave up is practically unusable for anything except organ tones- it has that cheesey, digital pitch harmonizer effect that sounds fairly close in tone to Alvin and the Chipmunks. I think what I like least about it is that it doesn't seem to work well in front of drive pedals, let alone a fuzz (the buffer makes the overdrives sound brittle and thin and the fuzz just completely freaks out). Without being able to place the octave pedal up front, it makes it impossible to get that warm, chunky octave tone that only comes from the sound of distorting the shifted pitch rather than shifting the distorted pitch. Don't get me wrong, it's a great octave pedal, probably the best digital octaver that I have come across. It tracks really well and can cop true bass tones with no effort at all. Still, I need my analog fix! Enter the Octron. I plug it in today, starting with it after my drives to see how well it can track. It tracks beautifully and the octave down sounds great, but the octave up sounds thin, garbled and lost in the mix. So I put it out front, expecting it to destroy my fuzz tone (I'm using a Fulltone Soul-Bender MKIII clone). Holy sh*t!! I have never heard such gorgeous octave tones! The octave up volume issue disappears, and I get great, Octavia bite, even with the MKIII clone. The octave down is monstrous and can easily be used to conjour Neil Young's "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" from the Album Live Rust. Perhaps most impressive, the tone of my direct signal is fully intact! Anyway, I just could not help but share my love for the Foxrox Octron. This is truly an epic octave pedal and I very much doubt a better pedal could even be imagined. For those who care, here are my settings: Octave Up Gain- full clockwise; Octave Up Tone- full counterclockwise; Sub Octave Tone- full clockwise; for octave up tones, I keep the "direct" pot at 3 o'clock and the "octave up" pot at 1:30; for octave down tones, I keep the "direct" pot at 3 o'clock and the "octave down" pot at 3 o'clock. Please share your "Best Octave Pedal" opinions along with your settings!
