Versatile, all-in-one analog synth for your bass.

The Chunk Systems Octavius Squeezer is an analog synth pedal that is designed specifically for bass guitar. The Octavius Squeezer bass pedal offers true analog reconfigurable signal path technology, true bypass switching, and a comprehensive array of analog synth, octaver, fuzz, envelope filter, and other effects all driven by a convenient digital preset system. With all this plus tuner and metronome”in a size that fits in your gig bag”this is one bass pedal you can't afford to be without.

The Octavius Squeezer bass synth pedal includes a dedicated filter circuit and fuzz circuit first bred in its predecessors. A digital pitch tracking stage tracks the notes you play right down to the bottom of your bass guitar's range. The tracking stage also drives an analog synthesizer, which can produce various waveforms at the same pitch as your input, 1 octave down, or 1 or even 2 octaves up. All of this output can be patched, mixed, and configured in a variety of ways to give an enormous array of available effects.

Use the effect control to switch between the 50 user-editable presets that can be stored in the Octavius Squeezer pedal's onboard memory. Adjust any of the presets on-the-fly with a twist of the param knob. See the current effect and parameter settings clearly displayed on Octavius Squeezer's backlit LCD. Use the 2 user-assignable footswitches to bypass, tap-tempo, and switch effects on the fly. Save and load additional presets to an SD card (like the one in your digital camera) using the onboard card reader, and use it to upgrade Octavius's firmware as new versions become available.
