Whenever you post a youtube video on this website, you need to remove the "s" from the youtube URL. I've fixed it for you this time, but just so's you know for future, noob.

More dollarz but the EHX POGs are super solid.

i had a mooer pitch shifter and it was garbage. terrible tracking and only sympathetic to notes in the b major scale. everything else was dissonant

the only pedals that seem worth a punt are the pog or digitech whammy. best tracking i've ever had is surprisingly on fender mustang amps

88 bucks on reverb.com for the tender might be worth a try next paycheck...

Sort of relevant: I've been playing with my OC-3 a lot recently and can't get it to track at all reliably. I understood that the OC-2 was loved because it was glitchy, and that the OC-3 was supposed to be better/cleaner. I remember it being much better than this so I'm wondering if it's the guitar I'm using.

I guess it would help if I explained my intended use of the effect. I'm basically looking for something to track single or octave (power chord without the 5th) lines, adding only the higher octave. The tone will be over driven, and if it sounds a little synthy, I'm ok with that.

i found the oc3 to be one of the classic "only tracks reliably around the 12th fret on neck pickup" type pedals

I'm planning to add the tender to my new board soon just because space is limited....donner makes a similar pedal for $50 but it just came out and there's no demos of it yet.

I liked my Boss PS3 and the pitch shifting on my vox delaylab when I had them, also the EHX Pitchfork looks good too.

Pitchfork does look awesome- not keen on EHX's 'balance' control (losing dry signal at the cost of FX signal is shite for some effects), but I think it'd work here. Obviously I can vouch for the Micro POGs, even if they don't keep the huge round bottom end (missus) of something like an OC-2. Tracking is worth it.

May cash in my spare Micro POG for a Pitchfork sometime soon actually.

A lot of the glitchy aspects of certain octave/pitch shifting pedals can be fixed by putting a compression pedal in front of them. If the input its getting a varying signal, the processors/circuit will react oddly.

I have a compressor after my OC-3. My thinking was it would be good there to thicken up or fix the sound the OC-3 makes, but what you're saying makes sense.

Not certain I could be bothered with taking my board apart to try...
