I had another message prepared (accidently posted it when I went to edit it). My initial impressions from lower volume testing were great - no negatives. Before I posted I got the opportunity to turn it up to gig volume for a little while. I've now had about two hours to play with it. I love some aspects of the OCD and do not care for some others. Pros: Very dynamic, cleans up very well at all gain settings, EQ'd very well for my amp, sounds great at low volume. Cons: Does not sound as natural at gig/jam volumes, there's some upper-mid harshness that becomes more evident the louder the amp is. I'd like to keep the OCD just for low volume playing but if it's not on my board it just won't get used. If it's not going to get used then it's gotta go. I'm waiting for a Love Pedal COT 50 to arrive. I put the OCD on my board where the COT is slated to go so that I'll have it in front of me for a couple of weeks. It'll get used quite a bit in that time. More to come.
