Overall: There's a really bad review for this pedal and although I don't usually write reviews, I thought that review was so inaccurate and unfair, I just had to put my 2 cents in. Simply, this is the best octave pedal I have used. For reference, over the years I've used EHX POG, Boss OC3, J. Rockett WTF and the Digitech GNX3 (multi FX, including octaver). I've been using the Sub n Up for about 6 months. To address the "blown speaker" sound mentioned by the other reviewer: I'm sure if the SUB2 knob is above 50%, through a 6-10" practice amp, it sounded like $#!+. Those speakers aren't designed to reproduce those frequencies...duh. However, even on my Yamaha THR10C, a decidedly practice amp, I can get good results, but to think you can dime every knob and get a good sound is unrealistic and foolish. The tracking on this pedal is better than anything else out there in POLY mode. Single notes are perfect to the ears and fingers, no latency. Clean chords are defined (with appropriate settings). In CLASSIC mode, the Sub n Up sounds and plays like a POG. The TONE PRINT setting has about a dozen presets you can access on your phone. Most of them are pretty good, a few are awesome. Using tone print is stupid EASY...select the preset, hold your phone up to your guitar's pick up (seriously) and the app sends out this fax machine, "dial up" kind of noise that "programs" the pedal. That's it. Once you've loaded the tone print, you can turn the knobs to adjust to taste. Also, a neat little 'cheat' is that some of the presets have HOF reverb and/or Corona Chorus. You can turn down the octave knobs and keep the verb and/or chorus. The app makes the SUB2 knob the wet/dry level for the reverb. There are 2 extra pedals included for free...sort of. If you want an octave pedal, you're not likely to find a better one than this. So many useful tones to be had. However, if you think any random combination of settings should sound good, through any old speaker, you're wrong. Nothing works like that. Also, this thing is metal. The knobs and switch are solid. If someone tried to steal mine, I'd use this pedal to bludgeon them.

Overall: overall: this thing is built like a toy and hence has the sound you'd expect, awful. features: while they seem pretty cool a first glance octave up,down and 2 down, don't be fooled if it sounds like trash the features are useless.quality: yeah that's a funny joke, shoddy construction all around from the extra cheap housing to the ultra flimsy foot switch it's just built like something you'd expect to maybe last a couple months of actual use before disintegrating.sound: the sound is the worst part,they should call this thing the blown speaker simulator because that's exactly what it sounds like and forget about adding fuzz or distortion, all you get back is a warbaly distorted mess...if you can't get one octave right why add a second?In short unless tc electronic gets their act together I won't even entertain buying anything from them again I really can't tell you how awful this thing is enough....but if you must know for yourself, go ahead and order one
