Default Recommend me a good octave doubler

I'm looking for a good natural sounding octave doubler to use on my saxophone. I want to turn my tenor saxophone into a bass saxophone.

Most of what I've tried so far sounds too electronic. Not that there's anything wrong with that...just not what I'm looking for at this point.

ETA: Nevermind. Pitch II by Avid does exactly what I want.

There's UVI Falcon and iZotope RX that'll do pitch shift and they sound damned good at it.

If you're looking at just adding a sub octave Waves Submarine is the most natural sounding sub plugin that I'm aware of.

If you want to drop the entire pitch by an octave that gets a bit tricker as it is hard to get it sounding natural. RX is a good option, but pricey and not a good option if you want to do it in real time.

You could try looking at Nectar or their VocalSynth plugin, but the latter is most likely to sound less natural. Or there is WavesTune RT, not sure if that can drop sounds an octave, though. Then there is Ovox, but like VocalSynth there's a good chance you may not get natural results from it.
