    HI all,


    Anyone here prefer the older OCD rather than the newer 500 meg model?
    Thanks,
    Mass

    I haven't tried the new OCD, but there's never been a problem with the old one to my ears. What exactly is different with the new one?

    I tried the new OCD for the possibility of more mids, but for me it lost most of the harmonic magic that I dig so much about the old one. It just sort of tamed the pedal overall (lows and highs), which was not what I wanted. And the additional mids were not enough to make up for it.

    All that said, the new OCD retains the unbeatable touch sensitivity/dynamics, and the wide-open, uncompressed feeling of the old one.
    It's still bomb, I just prefer the first version.

    I have #488 OCD. The micro switch was broke when I bought it, and It's on the lower gain side all the time. I bought off Fleabay, and was screwed in the deal, but in the end I love the OCD. I was going to send it in to get fixed and get the mod, but why mess with a great sounding box. I set the gain less then 9:00 and it really shines with my EJ strat and a Maz jr/celestion blue. I LOVED the Fat Boost I had, and I think i set my OCD to get closer to it, but the pedal is sooo responsive, and I can't remember it the FB was that way as well.
    i would like to hear the OCD on the HP setting some day........

    Not I. I sold my old OCD because I didn't care for the tone I was getting. By chance I was in a store two months ago that had gotten the new ones in and loved the change. Touch sensitive magic in those white boxes.

    Is there any way to "MOD-out" those harsh highs in the OCD?
