berger's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good but limited"

Boss OC-3 SUPER Octave
3 types octave;


I use for my by the -1 octave + disco.
Acute on a fretless sounds a bit like Magma (for old who knew ;-)
Make short notes well attacked.

For the rest as soon as the note takes a bit ... it answers,

otherwise it is good solid Boss, and very easy to adjust. It eats a little pile so plan the PSU 9V


distortion mode it goes with my fretless ... its really sounds fishing.
but it really picks up too easily when the note is held, or it is not enough attacked.
and ... never 2 notes at the same time or else it becomes very ... how to say electronic end of life ;-)


It's a small effect on a chorus or a greasy part jazz rock.
after you get tired quickly.

for me it is a good investment opportunity but because it finally rarely used.

0tom0's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" pedal hard to settle"

Boss OC-3 SUPER Octave
OC3 is the pedal (pedal size so), fully digital, with 2 inputs (guitar or bass) and two outputs ("dry" signal and processed), to descend from one to two octaves below the original.


the interface is very intuitive and well fucked.


this is where it gets hot. emulation is by no means stable, the generated octaves have no attacks, often pedal "seeks" the note, in short, the sound is not really satisfactory.

Following testing, here's what I've seen, and that could help you "sound" this pedal:
-Your guitar must have an output level therefore, otherwise the result will be totally scrap ...
You'll look better on the humbuckers on the microphones simple, even for a similar output level
You'll look better on a neck pickup as a bridge pickup.

Basically, the ideal for a correct result, is having an incoming signal with a very decent volume, and a signal rather fat, high in low (left to push the knob to tone bottom ...)


Shame to have to hack our own sound to be rendered properly with the unit ..

Boss .. we are used to better.

Boss OC-3 SUPER Octave
This is an octave, with a distortion.


The edition is a bit tedious, but once understood the trick is not bad


I use it with my guitar and distortion.


I for 1 year
a product is safe, without more, with trends agnrer indsirables noises.
CHRE just for me.
