I had the opportunity last week to test the pre-production Mu-FX Octave Divider and compare it with a 1978 Musitronics Mutron Octave Divider. This new pedal is amazing. It is essentially an update of the original with better tracking and more control. Playing staccato it will track down to low B on a 5 string bass.
There are two overall modes – EFFECT, and SOLO.
When engaging the EFFECT switch you now have control over the relative mix of BASS-the octave down with a TONE control, DRY-the unaltered input signal and RINGER distortion. You now can dial in just the right amount of octave and ringer – my favorite feature.
