i am a true believer in <digitech whammy pedal> version 1(red) or 2(black)
which were both done w/ IVL technowlogies ltd. software.
it goes one octave down in real time for a great bassline-or 2 octaves
down-same thing. it has other harmony patches, detunes,octaves up but i 
use the octave down patch. never heard or used anything better. ymmv
