[Harp-L] OC-3 Octave, effects etc
Sounds like you're going for a use similar to Jason's on the octave pedal.
It does work well in its (unintended) role as a compressor, with mix turned
all the way up and octaves all the way down. As an Octave device, it tracks
notes and chords quite well, which most similar devices don't. An exception is
the pricey ElectroHarmonix POG, which tracks almost perfectly, or the even
pricier but highly versatile HOG. Each of those brings many octaves, intervals
and options to the table.
No problem going mic-to-effects-to-amp with your setup. It'll be just the
same as going mic-to-amp. You probably already use an mic impedance converter
when you plug direct into the amp; so just plug into your 1st effect pedal
just as you would kusually plug into the amp input. Then 1/4 inch cord out of
that effect and into the next. And 1/4" out of that one and into your amp.
Experiment a little with the order of your effects pedals in a line. I
usually use delay as the last effect in a chain. Then again, "bizarre" can be a
good thing. My first girlfriend, for instance.....well, that's another thread.

Was curious to see if anyone owns the OC-3 or has tried it and what their
thoughts about it are. I'm looking into buying one both for the octave
and sort of a compressor/preamp type thing. My mic is an EV-RE10...and the
being a Blues Jr. modified for harp w/a vintage Jensen P12R...if that makes
Also, a very elementary question, but since I'm just begining w/effects, I'm
wondering...how do you run the mic through two effect pedals into the amp at
the same time? In my case, it would be the OC-3 and the DD-3 delay.
