BOSS OC-2 question
I was playing with my new pedals and getting an idea of what order I wanted them in and I realized that any kind of overdrive, distortion or fuzz pedal in front caused problems in the OC-2 (I know John I know, that's what you told me...) but, I switched them around and the problem wasn't as pronounced, but it still happened... This is the first time I have used one of these so it may be newbie-itus
The problem was that the octave would be 'late?' for lack of a better term...
I'd be playing single lines and I could audibly hear my note and then milliseconds later, the octave note(s) when it was acting up.... when it worked, the notes were simultaneous. The problem didn't seem to ever happen when playing the OC-2 by itself.
Anyone ever have this kind of experience?

Re: BOSS OC-2 question
This is common with the OC2. The lateness that you are experiencing that is. Some compression after the OC2 can help. Basically you have to keep a sustainable attack on the note to avoid the "lateness". The OC2 isn't meant for chord structures, just single note attacks. Hope this helps!
"Gain" is not the answer to sounding like who you think you are sounding like.
