Re: Upwards pitch shift (Was Re: qualities of reverb OT)

Thanks Scott, I may have to check out an rp150, the price certainly is  
right though it's kinda big. Wonder if it uses the same engine as the  
Whammy? I like everything on table top too, except for punch-in pedals  
and volume. If I could rigup a remote bypass it could almost fit the  

Why is it, actually, that there are plenty of analog octave-down  
effects, but octave-ups are always of the Octavia fuzz type? Even  
Zvex's Jonny Octave, which purports to be clean, is pretty damn  
distorted, judging from the clips on their site.
