In octave mode, can you play chords or does it get quite droney?
TBH I'm still exploring the presets. It's taking a while because so many of them just sound so good and once you start tweaking you can spend hours faffing around.
It looks like the Octaver effect only goes down 1 and 2 octaves, not up but Diatonic lets you shift up up to 2 octaves. Some of the pitch shifts don't work so well on chords depending on what key and mode you select. I'm not much on theory, I just twiddle till it sounds good. I'm going to need to put some effort in and learn to drive it properly.
What strikes me though is how rarely the presets descend into nasty territory unlike my other digitech and korg multieffects pedals. In terms of satisfaction and all round fun this would have to be the best bit of gear I've bought.
