[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 
any difference.
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.
Thank You,
