It lowers the pitch down an octave, I think.

there are some pedals out there that take the note that you play, and drop it down an octave.
Jack white uses a Whammy pedal, i believe.
sub= low
octave=...well...octave
so a suboctave effect will take the note down an octave
and
yeah

Well, not quite. It makes ANOTHER note below yours, so it harmonizes.

yeah..you can go up. It's called an octaver. Satriani uses it a lot. But you can get sub octave effects that either play BOTH notes (the octave higher and the octave lower) or there are some that will just use the lower note.

...unless you set the "mix" on it to only play the sub-octave that is being generated by the pedal.

Is there a pedal that makes a note an octave higher than the actual note with the actual note?

Yes, it's called a Pitch Shifter, Boss makes a couple, the Digitech Whammy is also capable of it.

Anyways, your question has been answered roughly six times and is also in the wrong forum so
