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.
