I’ve been chasing an elusive sound. A pipe organ type thing. Modulated like a rotary speaker, but bassy. I run with a Strymon Lex which is one of my all-time favorite pedals. And then, I found this thing I didn’t know I was missing: the TC Sub’N’Up. The price is approachable to begin with. Christmas deals made it even more so. Cash worries swept aside, I took a chance. What I tripped into is a super-cool, fun-inspiring and insanely musical pedal. This really is an instrument sitting in line with the guitar and it is a blast to play with. What has not been a blast is the “Toneprint” thing. It’s gotta be more than a marketing gimmick, but the technical complexity has proven to be a barrier for me. Power-user I am not. I’ve spent my time playing and have stayed out of the Toneprint rabbit hole. Toneprint aside, I really dig this thing. Like a wah or envelop filter, it takes a bit of noodling to find strike gold with consistency. I’ve hit some really discordant mud, but this is more a testament to my messy playing and lack of precision than any issue with this cool little box. I dig it! ~m
I've had this pedal for about 6 months now and am not tired of playing with it yet. Great for Guitar and Bass it can actually give you 2 layers of octave, below and or above the root pitch you play. You have to try it.
I don't have a great deal of input here—I use this pedal primarily to thicken my tone a bit. It does have two subs down, one octave up, and a polyphonic and monophonic options (via toggle switch). I have not tested it with my fuzz, but I can only imagine that it will sound fabulous!
Let's briefly talk about the Toneprint feature. I think it is a good idea, and had about an hour of fun with it. I really hope TC throws some more resources at their application's functionality and UI design. It's not very well thought out. It's been on the market long enough where you think it would have been upgraded. The iPhone app is clunky and crash-prone at this point...
The low sub down is nice to have, but it's more than my rig can handle—Mesa Boogie 5:25 and a Vox AC4. Maybe fun with a bass guitar!
The EBS Octabass is a way better fit for bass - the SubNup is quite lacking the bottom end. But for guitar this pedal is great and sounds way more natural than the EHX POG2. The POG is more synth-like - which is great for what it is. Essentially: no one will ever own ENOUGH Octave-Pedals. :)
