Here are the settings that I typically use........... The lower the drop, the higher the 'Low Cut'. 1/2 step - 114 Hz. Whole step - 200 Hz.

@Moke can I ask what the modifier does?
It allows a couple of milliseconds of (only) the original, un-shifted, dry 'pick attack' signal through when you first strike a note. If you are constantly playing, It won't do anything. You have to stop for a split second for the ADSR controller to reset. It really helps for percussive parts like 'chucking' or tight 'palm-muting'.

Thank you Moke
Always interesting to show the tricks with screenshots, great work ;)

Hi Moke,

Just tried your settings and they work quit well. Sure you still hear a bit of latency and a different attack but it's workable for a few songs. I wouldn't do a whole set with it though. When you detune more than a half steps you will hear more latency obviously and also the sound degrades and gets more muddy.

Also tried going up in pitch like you do with a capo. When going up you will hear the wavering when you let the chord ring and with more complex chords you can get in trouble. Also tried the octave up solo. That works for single lines but not well for chords. You really need polyphonic pitch detection for that. So in that case the Drop pedal or a MicroPog or Pitchfork will do a better job because they have polyphonic pitch detection.

the axe has polyphonic pitch detection...it's right there in the first screenshot...see it?

"pitch track" = "poly"

Thanks, I'm a completely noob when it comes to modifiers
