    Got the full sized TC Subn’Up.
    And I’m underwhelmed.
    The Up Octave is weak.
    The Lower Octaves are Muddy.
    The TonePrints are meh. The organ tone is okay but not as good as an EHX B9 imho.
    No real desire to hook it up to a laptop and mess with creating my own TonePrint.
    And it cuts my signal.
    Playing a Mustang into a VOX Pathfinder 15r. So, single coils.
    Fiddled with amp and pup and tone settings. Tried a compressor on it.
    Still a no go.

    So, it’s going back unless any of you guys / gals have some advice to improve it.

    If I get a pog, should I go nano or micro? Don’t want pog 2.

    Do you need a compressor on the pog?

    Sorry! I wrote a telephone book!

    So, I decided to record a little with the Sub n Up.
    Beautiful. Lovely.
    It’s a keeper for recording alone.

    I don’t see it as a live kind of thing for me. Maybe if I switched it to buffer mode.

    I guess I figured it out.

    Good to hear you got it sorted! This so far is one of the few pedals from TC where I don’t think they reached their usual stellar (IME) potential. I ended up with a EHX Pitchfork which has its own particular tonal vibe (which is hard to describe) which I dig.
