Ok, I now have a Boss OC3. I am wondering if mine is broken or this is a user error of some kind. I am attempting to have only the octave down sound, on the first two strings, in poly mode. The pedal is so quiet I have to turn my amp way up to compensate. It does not sound the way it does in gear demo videos. For reference, the setting on the pedal are: Direct Level: 0 Octave 1 Level: Max Octave 2 Level: Around 10 o'clock Mode: Poly When I max the Octave 2 in poly mode it gives me a great octave down sound on all strings at normal volume. But I bought this pedal specifically for the poly mode, which doesn't seem to work. It seems that the Octave 2 control is only acting as a volume knob. Does anyone else have issues with this? Is my pedal defective? Thanks for your time!
