General What is your overall opinion of this product? very very well made. meticulously packaged as well. this is a professional audio processing effect that is best suited for experienced musicians. it reflects your playing. beginners may not be pleased at hearing their off playing in chord form. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? excellent quality. very solid. feels very solid. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? great set of features. i like the ability to mix the output of the clean or effected signal or send it to a board with separate outputs for each. could use more tone control if you are using the overdrive function and as well it would be nice if an onboard fuzz/distortion was added.. but that can easily be added with another pedal. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? the sound is incredible. i am using it with a cello and it really thickens it up - i can play nice etherial leads to metal percussive rhythms with it. the trick is to balance the clean and effect output as if you do not, the effect out adds some gain and will overpower the clean and you will lose the original note value in the mix. it is also important that the instrument has a strong signal for the best tracking - also best to not use too many open notes as these sometimes continue to play as you move the nest note and can confuse the unit, as expected because often a dissonant chord is created in the overtones. it responds to how you play, so if your playing is off, it will sound off - it does not cover up bad playing like many effects. Feel Are the controls logically laid out? excellent feel. a little on the large size but still single 9v. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? it may seem pricy but that is would you pay for having top end digital audio converters in it. it is basically a very dedicated computer. it is well worth it if you value your sound above all.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Solid durable case. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Great set of power-chord features. Most useful are 1 Octave Up, and 1 Octave Up + 2 Octaves Up + the 5th between. Also the ability to send the effects to a separate amp is great! Effectively, you can run the guitar signal to your guitar amp while the bass signal goes to you bass amp. Sound How is the tone? The effects signal is a little weak, even with the proper trim adjustment, but a clean boost can compensate for that. General Your general opinion of this product. A great idea, but it doesn't really work well.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As I said built like a tank, been using it for 6 weeks, home, practice, and a couple of gigs, no problems... bought the a/c adapter so, I cannot speak to the length of battery life. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? This unit is all about choice.. octave up .... add a 4th below that...or combine with or add the 5th above the octave... and to top it off a guitar power chord of octave above bass, octave above that, with the 5th in between... even has a separate output for the effect for a guitar amp Sound How is the tone? Honestly, the 4th, and the upper guitar chord sound fantastic, the 5th by itself sounds weak. What sounds like too much in the bedroom will get drowned out with the band, you have to crank the effect and it's fine... your INTONATION is key, if your off a little, it will be off, and sound like it. You have to hit the strings with authority and it sounds great... just barely touch the strings and you get a crappy metallic sound like a flanger with the regeneration cranked or a poor sound.
