EHX Octave Multiplexer - Any good?

Recommended Posts

Looking into getting a new octave pedal as the direct signal on my OC2 has gone and the Octave 1 often doesn't cut through by itself.

Ideally I'd get a MuTron Octavider but I'm looking at cheaper models for the time being. 
Has anyone had any experience with the Octave Multiplexer? Any good/bad feedback?  I just need a simple octaver really

I quite liked the Octave Multiplexer I had although it's certainly a different flavour than the OC2. The TC Nether seems like a nice cheap OC2 clone if that's what you're after. My personal fav cheapo octave is the Chord OC-50, which is OC2 based but with a drive option.

Thanks for the suggestions! To be honest, I'm just looking for a general octaver at this point, the OC2 does what it does and has that smooth mid range sound, but I'm just looking for something perhaps a bit different to the OC2, maybe more 'standard octaver' if that makes sense? I had a Foxrox Octron which had a really nice Octave down. A bit fatter than the OC2, super clean and tracked well. Also had a distorted octave up which had its uses (but not a necessity). 
I might consider getting one of those again..
It's a bit silly but I'm picky with colour schemes on my board ha, most of it is black/silver/white so I'm trying to find something that will not only sound right but look right.

If you're OCD about colours then... Can't really help you with that... Although the Octave Multiplexer would fit.

Valeton do an OC-2 copy for not much, but again, that's not different.

Valeton OC-10 for the closest thing to an OC2 (if that's the sound you're after?) available in the market today.

It's also a lot more compact plus rugged build, and a new one will set you back literally half the cost of a 30 year old OC2.

Thanks for the suggestions so far think I might go to a shop and try a multiplexer out, if it's not what I need, then I'll wait and get a Foxrox Octron 3 or a Mutron Octavider. Shame neither is sold in the Uk though ha :(

      Two great pedals. Due to a change in set up I don't need them anymore. I have had them for about 4 years but they haven't been over used. The Octamizer is a really great Octave effect to reach deep lows with effective tracking as well as offering synth like sounds, and the Filter Twin can produce some classic funky sounds.
      I can also sell them individually.
      My feedback is here https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/298215-feedback-for-darylclayton/?tab=comments#comment-3211013
      Thanks

Everything is priced keenly to sell, but I will do discounts for multiple puchases. Assume a pedal is in good condition unless otherwise stated.

      Hi,
      I am looking at replacing my Aguilar Octamiser as I don’t use it that much and looking to get an octave pedal that’s a bit more adventurous. 
      The EarthQuaker devices bit commander looked really fun and wondered if anyone had some experiences with it? I wanted to ask how good it is as a stand alone octave pedal especially in the tracking department as that is where I felt the Aguilar wasn’t very good. I also wanted to ask how crazy the synth function can be, to experiment with.
      Any experiences with the pedal or any other options for octaves pedals with extra functions would be great.
      Thanks for reading this.
      Rick

      In great condition - has been on my board for about a year so there are a few marks but it's in perfect working order.
