Looking for a cheap to moderately priced octave down pedal. Just something basic, reliable, and good sounding. Thanks
Excellent choice IMHO. It can do 1,2,&3 octaves down, up, or both, plus other intervals. Easy to use. 2 knobs and a switch. Easily can do fake bass guitar, in a live setting. It loves fuzz both before and after. Sounds massive with a Fuzz Face and set to octave down.EHX Pitchfork. $139 new
I have to reply to myself here to correct what I said. Yes the MicroPOG sounds terrible for emulating a bass, and the Zoom ms50G MonoSynth sounds awesome and very close to the sound of a bass. But the Zoom does not track well at all. I was using it to record a bassline for a song yesterday and although it sounded very convincing, fairly often the note would completely **** up and switch up or down a semitone, totally out of tune. Bad tracking on that Zoom so I don't recommend it.Do you need polyphonic? For recording bass lines on guitar, the MicroPOG is terrible and sounds really chimey and not like a bass at all, but the MonoSynth patch on the Zoom ms50G (under $100 I think?) sounds much better and actually sounds prety much like a bass guitar. But it doesn't track chords and doesn't work perfectly well if you want to play fast.
