I've owned it. I sold it a few months after I purchased an Eventide Timefactor. I would still like to have it, except that after the Pitchfactor, it was a luxury, and anymore if I only want as much as I can fit on my reasonably good sized pedal board. But I always liked this item, and do recommend it. It does some nice things. You can get one pretty inexpensively on Ebay. It is one of those things that some people criticize. But I feel that is unjust. Some guys (as you know) have a style that is limited, and something like this is really not every style of play, such as SRV or example. It is good for a lot of metal type stuff. Anything so long as you only play 2 at most note chords with major 4th of 5ths. So it is not something you use all the time. And for some people with limited styles, it is not something they would want to use at all. So that I feel is the root of most of the criticism of the pedal. It does not track quite as well as the Eventide, but it tracks decently.

The Pitchfactor has three effects than can do octaves, and you have a lot more control. I have all three Pedals. They are expensive (though I got them 15-20% off new with warranty. But I don't regret them, they really are as fine as you get I think. And well supported. They just updated the firmware with a lot of new features and improvements, so now the pedals are the new model. As an example, the harmonizer had been limited to the basic 7 modal scales, major, minor, etc. The new firmware has harmonic minor, melodic minor, and others as well. So the support is great.

But again, I really liked the Boss pedal. It does some really neat things. I just can't be tripping on things all the time, moving them, feeling guilty because I yelled at the dogs for jumping on things. I need some floor space.
