Fascinated with the rhythmic/echo-y/reverb-y sounds of the particles engine in Noire piano, I sought out similar multitap pitched delays I could use on synths. I tried the free Chow Matrix but it was not only finicky but sounded grainy. Cubase's own multitap delay, which does sound smooth, only goes to a 5th (7st). Loomer's Shift2, with it's five pitched delay lines, was also a contender for top spot, but Octavox with its eight taps, multiple scales, and easy to use interface, was the winner. Too bad you need a little math for this plugin. Instead of allowing you to set the taps at intervals such as 1/4, 1/8, 16, 1/16 dotted, etc, it uses ms. That means, if you're working at 120bpm, you'd have to know 62ms=1/8 note, 93ms=dotted 1/8th note, 125ms=1/4 note, 250m=1/2 note, 375ms=dotted half note, etc. Pretty tedious, but since Octavox allows you to save presets, that's a plus. I really like pitch intervals, too. Using it, you can never go wrong in what every key you're working in as the proper scale is already set for you. Hopefully, in Octavox 2, they'll add traditional timing in addition to the ms.
