With its new Sub’n’Up Mini Octave pedal, TC Electronic takes the sounds of its popular octave effect and squeezes them into a smaller pedal format. OK, so you lose a few controls, but does this keep the all-important lows?
The Sub’n’Up Mini has the three controls – Dry, Sub and Up – for the volume of each octave. The second, lower octave, i.e. sub 2, and the small lever which switches between two factory presets and the Tone Print User Preset all are missing. However, according to TC, these can be set via the the Tone Print editor software. So you get almost all sounds from the big pedal, including the modulation.
The date for the launch of the Sub’n’Up Mini is not yet known, but I reckon it should be in dealerships fairly soon. The official TC Electronics demo video gives a good overview of what to expect and is worth a watch if you are on the lookout for some low down and dirty action.
