So...

I just bought a Boss GT-8 and i was wondering how (if it's possible) to set the exp. pedal as an octave pitcher (like in the solo of Killing in the name by RATM). I didn't really understood how to do it with the instructions manual...

go into the FX box its in (FX 2 i think if its anything like the gt-6) and set it so pitch shift, you can set the maximum and minimum pitch from there and stuff

im pretty sure that the Killing in the Name solo uses a wah
my gear:
gibson les paul classic
epiphoen les paul standard
fender standard fat strat
peavey valveking 112
boss me-50
crybaby original wah

I've done what you said but when the pedal is open no sound comes out. The pedal is probably set to be on the "on/off" mode but i don't know how to change it neither...

I had this misconception too, the effect you're looking for is Pedal Bend, not pitch shift.

Yup on the pedal bend, and you'll want to move FX2 to the head of your signal chain on the GT-8 or the whammy effect will not track properly.
