And the Coyote replies:
    The so-called "octave" sounds on the EH Synth are just dedicated
distortion circuits. The octave-up is much like the Octavia fuzzboxes, and
the octave-down is like the Boss Octave Box or whatever it's called or the
Blue Box (I think; I haven't heard/played it yet) . Far removed from
conventional "warm tube-like" distortion or digital pitch shifters like the
Digitech Whammy, these circuits mangle your notes big time, especially when
you play two notes at once, as you probably already know. Yes, wicked. In a
Satanic way.
