"Useless"

This was a huge disappointment. Tracking was abysmal, it might as well have been a delay pedal with how late the octave showed up. The signal was also spotty and muddy, couldn't get a good sound out of it. The idea of the knob configuration was really intriguing, but if the pedal doesn't work who cares?For the record, I'm not one of those people that doesn't know a sub-octave can't go past the E string (Low E = 41Hz, half that to get the sub =20.5Hz, aka almost the lower limit of human hearing), but even mid neck on the D and G string tracking was spotty. Could it be a bad unit? Sure, but I'm not dunlop quality control so I returned the unit. Went and got an OC-5, very happy with that pedal.
