    Comments about TC Electronic Sub 'N' Up Octaver Pedal:

    I kind of went back and forth on this pedal for quite a while; I've never really been an "experimental" player so I wasn't really sure if it was for me or how often I would use it. But actually I've found that it's pretty easy to incorporate in to my playing and it adds some really cool atmosphere when used in the right scenario. Either a nice warm 12 string sound, some heavily distorted single note lead lines with a sub octave, or a killer polyphonic organ/mellotron sound. This pedal does it all and does it well! If you think you could have fun with it, go for it!! I use mine every day and certainly don't regret it.

        Comments about TC Electronic Sub 'N' Up Octaver Pedal:

        I was a bit hesitant to get this pedal because most players and stores kind of hinted that it was designed for guitar and wouldn't serve me well on bass. I was using a Boss OC-3 before buying this pedal, so my expectations were high. This pedal exceeds my expectations. The Octave Up is a perfect way to cut through the mix if you use it subtly. the Sub 2 is so powerful that it's a little scary because it could be a speaker-killer. Super responsive; next to zero-lag. The tone print... awesome! I can make my bass sound like a legit organ.

        Very happy with this pedal!

            Comments about TC Electronic Sub 'N' Up Octaver Pedal:

            Don't expect this to work with an acoustic guitar! I've been using ElectroHarmonix Pitch Fork for a couple of years at least, and thought this unit might be an improvement because it would offer more precise control of the mixing (with the TonePrint feature as a bonus).

            But it was just the opposite. I use the Pitch Fork in my acoustic trio to provide bass on certain songs, and it works quite well for that purpose. But the Sub 'N' Up completely flakes out on higher bass notes (think Paul's bass part on "Rain," for example). In the higher range, you get essentially nothing. This is not a problem at all with the Pitch Fork.

            I also use the Pitch Fork for simulated 12-string on occasion, and while it's not great, it's acceptable. But I mixed the "wet" sound in at the highest level on the Sub 'N' Up and could barely hear the octave. No amount of fiddling with the controls in either of the above instances produced acceptable results, and there was even more "quacking" on the Sub 'N' Up than there is with the Pitch Fork.

            I realize that using this unit with an acoustic guitar is perhaps not what the designers had in mind, but still...I returned it and went back to my Pitch Fork. The only thing the Sub 'N' Up has going for it is the Tone Print feature, which sounded kind of cool with the default sound, and I'm sure can produce other neat effects. But it was useless for the features I need most from it.

            Comments about TC Electronic Sub 'N' Up Octaver Pedal:

            Nice octave pedal, but be prepared to spend some time finding your sound. You can get some useful sounds out of the box, but the software (available from TC Electronic) allows for endless parameter tweaking - suitable for geeks (like me). In a recent recording I was able to get a rather convincing "Rick 12" type of sound with a G&L Legacy (a better strat, G&L rules!) with the bass tone rolled back and some compression. Great pedal for recording, could be useful in a live setting.

              Comments about TC Electronic Sub 'N' Up Octaver Pedal:

              I got this pedal last week. Using it in my keyboard rig, mainly for the Moog.
              I have never enjoyed using an octaver before this pedal. Great response, I really like the option of poly or mono. Haven't messed with the tone print yet.
              Great effect when you take out the dry.
