Octaver clone VST that doesn't suck at tracking?

What's the best BOSS Octaver clone VST that isn't absolute rubbish at tracking the note you're playing?

So far POD Farm has the best one, but it has trouble with low notes. I'm wondering if there's any better ones out there.

Other has a problem of choosing the wrong octave to track on, and it ends up sounding like a unison note instead of 1 octave down from the note I'm playing.

Thanks.

Just some food for thought, but doesn't it also depend on for example your pickups. I can imagine something as sterile as active EMG's produce a far cleaner signal to track then some muddier passive pickups.

Maybe I'm wrong though.

While that can be a factor, I really do think it's the tracking's fault. I have other pitch tracking stuff that tracks monophonic riffs absolutely fine.

Sadly, I think that most of the octaver clones don't track as well as the real pedal.

Ah okays.

I asked cause I use amplitube's octaver for fake bass, and the tracking is slightly different depending on the pickup position I choose.
