    My previous multi-effect was a Lexicon MPX G2 and one thing it did pretty well was pitch shifting with useable latency. I'm a bass player and I want to have an credible octave down and the FX8 just doesn't do it. Especially when coupled with an envelope filter (basic Bootsy tones). The FX8 is over a decade newer than the G2, so it should be able to handle pitch as well as such an ancient box.

    Although this doesn’t address the pitch block latency, I find the ring mod set to track the pitch is the best and fastest octave down. especially for bass. Reminds me more of the time of the brown boss octave.
