    I freed up some room on my board and wanting to add some sort of pitch/octave pedal. The MicroPog is probably what I'm after but the pedal is a bit wider than I can work with once factoring in I/O. All I'm looking for is blending an octave above and/or below for overtones.

    Boss has a lot of options but I really don't need or care for the harmonizing capabilities that consume the PS5 & 6. The PS3 gives me jazz hands, if I can find one. What are some octave pedals you guys are using? Preferably Boss sized and the ability to mix the octave into my signal instead of overtaking, like the Whammy.

    Purely for octaves, I use my POG2 if there's space, and the Mooer Pure Octave if I need something small that cops the MicroPOG sound.

    pitch fork has been popular lately, I go Pog2 but that definately won't work for you if the Micro is too big. Maybe a Boss OC2/3 if all your after is octaves.

    Personally I'm happy with my pog2, does a lot more than just octaves, very versatile pedal for being an octave pedal.

    I just picked up a pitch fork and am pretty happy with it. Really well priced too.

    T rex octavius is another good one and it also has a very decent boost built into it. I believe its slightly smaller than the micro pog and has top mounted jacks.

    A lot of good suggestions I wouldn't have thought to check out, thanks guys. Gonna look into a few of these a bit more after work. The EHX PitchFork looks pretty sick and is small. I haven't heard much about the mak and T Rex ones so I'll see what's up with those later on today.

    My pitch fork just arrived. I wanted it mainly for faux bass sounds. Its too thin sounding for that. My mutiplexer does a far better job with the filter, even if the tracking isn't as good. The POG2 trumps for this. I stupidly sold it as i was looking for something smaller

    well, I guess if you can wait a little longer, it appears that EHX is going to be releasing a nano version of the micro pog, otherwise its the same pedal, just smaller.

    yes, i'd like to check out the nano pog but i think the filter is the key component on the POG2 for me for that fat, woody bass sound.

    I was thinking in getting the Pitchfactor but I just read that it's not polyphonic...

    I agree, the low pass filter is very handy on the Pog2, makes it easy to dial a bass sound.
