    Ripping sub-octave thump, pulsing octave down, a lightly squared base tone and a swelling transformer based octave up all join together to make a single guitar sound like an army of olde tyme synths.
    Like all analogue octave effects, there are some basic rules to follow that will get you the most enjoyment from your Bit Commander. Use the neck pickup and play single notes. The best tracking occurs from the 7th fret up on all the strings. Below the 7th will still track but there will be occasional glitches and stutters. The lower the note, the harder it is for the Bit Commander to register. The use of Bass and lower registers on keyboards will yield unexpected, sometimes pleasing, sometimes disgusting results. These are not mistakes or flaws, it is the nature of analogue octaves.

Insane pedal. One of a kind. I've played a few octave effects pedals but this takes it way further then all of the others. Dirty, filthy with a side order of sludge.

Good, tracks well, fun. However it is a challenge to fit into tonal landscape. Is that 25 characters yet, stupid restriction Feefo.
