So I went into my local music store yesterday with the intent of buying a Fullton Supa-Trem, which was awesome, yet walked out with an OCD. I tried it on a few of the Fenders(Twin Reverb, Deluxe, Super Reverb) and I honestly couldn't find a bad sounds of it with my Tele.

Now, I bring it home, with high expectations that it would still perform on my Orange, although I know they are very different amps, you would think a high quality tube amp would take an OD pedal well.

If I try it with the dirty channel with most of the gain rolled back to a cleanish sound and use the OCD, I get a muddy undefined dist on any setting. On the clean channel, it just doesn't work well at all, it sounds like a cheap dist pedal like a DS-1 or something.

Am I doing something wrong here, any little secrets besides running it in 18v mode?

Are you rolling back the gain on the pedal or Amp? Oranges take pedals very well.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

try setting the Orange slightly dirty and set the OCD for a very light/almost clean drive with the level on full.

You need to have the gain on the OCD below 9:00 to use it to boost an amp, generally. I find that HP gets rid of a lot of mud as well. Try it with the Volume somewhere around 1:00, Tone around 1:00 and gain around 9:00 with HP mode and see where that gets you.
