Boss OC-5 Octave Compact Pedal

The BOSS OC-5 Octave Compact pedal sets a new standard in octave pedal performance, featuring all the latest tracking technologies. Vintage mode provides a spot-on recreation of the legendary mono OC-2 from 1982. While Poly mode offers numerous enhancements for extended-range playing. Then, the addition of an octave-up feature spans three octaves for creative exploration.

From fat, low mono sounds to octave-shifted chords and more; the OC-5 delivers the widest range, finest sound quality, and best playability in any octave stomp to date.

OC-5 Octave Sound Tryout

With the custom TonePedia player, the OC-5 allows you to get interactive and explore hundreds of sound variations. Just select your instrument, tweak, and choose pedal settings. *Headphones and Google Chrome will give you the best experience possible.

High-Octane Octave Performance

Powered by the latest real-time processing technologies, the OC-5 provides exceptional sound and playability for the most expressive octave experience ever. A key feature is the newly developed tracking engine which delivers clean, accurate performance with no latency. The OC-5 also offers wide range and great polyphonic capabilities than previous OC models. So you’ve got all your octave needs covered in the one performance pedal.

OC-5 – Classic Tones with Vintage Mode

Introduced in 1982, OC-2 was the worlds first modern octave pedal for guitar and bass. It’s still loved by players everywhere with the warm and present tone sitting perfectly in a mix. Now, the OC-5 brings you OC-2’s iconic mono sound combined with an improved response thanks to the new tracking engine. There’s also dedicated level controls for -1 and -2 octave effects and direct sound. So you’ll have quick access to an endless variety of sub-octave colours.

Enhanced Poly Mode

What’s more, the OC-5 features an evolved version of the smart Poly mode introduced with the OC-3 Super Octave.So you can play full chords with octave effects. While the variable Range knob restrict the effect to the lower notes on your instrument. So it’s perfect for when you’re playing octave bass-lines along with normal chords and melodies.

Plus, with new tracking refinements, you can even isolate the octave effect to the bottom note in a chord. Simply turn the Range knob to the lowest setting.

Extended Range with Octave Up

Another great addition to the OC-5 is the new octave-up effect. Available in both Vintage and Poly modes and controlled by the dedicated +1 OCT knob to bring in the desired effect level. Use the octave-up effect on its own for faux 12-string sounds and unique solo tones. Or, blend it with the octave down effects for extended chord voicings and super-fat leads.

Guitar/Bass Switch and Direct Out

Finally, the OC-5 lets you instantly optimize the performance of its tracking engineer for both guitar and bass. And with Direct Out, its easy to route dry and effect sounds to different destinations such as two stage amps or discrete channels on a mixer or audio interface.
