In 1982, the OC-2 debuted as the world's first modern octave pedal. The OC-5's VINTAGE mode uses the latest tracking technology to deliver the iconic monophonic sound of the OC-2 with a more natural response. The two LEVEL knobs allow you to adjust the volume of the -1 and -2 octave sounds, respectively, and the DIRECT LEVEL knob allows you to balance the direct and effect sounds, giving you total control over your sound. Another feature of the OC-5 is the smart POLY mode, a further evolution of the polyphonic octave first introduced on the OC-3 Super Octave that is fully compatible with chord playing.
The RANGE knob allows the user to specify the bandwidth of the effect, so that a -1 octave sound can be created for melody lines or chords as desired. You can also set the RANGE knob to LOWEST to get an octave sound only on the lowest note of the chord. The OC-5 can produce a +1 octave sound in both VINTAGE and POLY modes, simulating the sparkling sound of a 12-string guitar, adding thickness to chords in combination with a -1 octave sound, or even adding a +1 octave to solo playing to increase its presence. The +1 octave adds a fat unison sound that adds presence to solo performances.
