Overview

Blast off to a whole new universe of sounds with the Electro-Harmonix HOG, a polyphonic guitar synthesizer with NO special pickup required. It gives you complete control of up to 10 interval pitches including fifth and third intervals, glistening filter sweeps, and insane pitch bends. Dedicated filtering and envelope control, with numerous setup options, make the HOG a must-have performance instrument.

The HOG can simultaneously generate multiple octaves and harmonics from your input signal. Whether you play single notes, arpeggios or full chords, the HOG will track every note you play. In addition, the HOG has seven expression modes that enable you to modify your sounds using the included expression pedal, a MIDI controller, or the expression button on the HOG itself. There is also an amplitude envelope and a 2nd order low-pass filter with resonance. The optional EH footcontroller (Item #153342) allows you to store and load six presets.

You have control over the HOG's basic audio circuitry with an input gain slider (with clip LED), a dry output slider, and a bypass switch. Audio I/O includes 1/4" Hi-Z input, 1/4" output, and a buffered direct output jack. The voice controls let you access the polyphonic synthesizer section. There are 10 voice sliders on the HOG, each with a white cap with a black line that controls the output volume for its voice. The ten sliders let you generate notes two octaves down, one octave down, the incoming signal, a fifth up, one octave up, an octave up plus a fifth, two octaves up, two octaves up plus a third, three octaves up, and four octaves up. The selectable envelope section controls the amplitude attack or decay of the voices, with separate sliders for the lower five voices and upper five voices.

The Spectral Gate button activates circuitry that emphasizes the loudest frequency or harmonic and reduces the volumes of all other present frequencies and harmonics. The filter frequency slider controls the cutoff or peak frequency of the low pass filter, while the filter resonance slider controls the Q or peak of the filter.

The HOG's seven different expression modes are selected consecutively by the expression mode switch: bend one octave, bend one step, volume, freeze plus gliss, freeze plus volume, wah-wah, and a filter. There is also an expression reverse mode and you can control the expression modes externally with an expression pedal or modulate any of the expression modes using MIDI pitch bend.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix HOG Octave Generator/Synthesizer Guitar Effect With Expression Pedal:

I thought about giving the HOG only 4 stars, but then I realized I'm still playing around with it. The octave bending is sick, but that's not all. The Freeze-Gliss is also very cool.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix HOG Octave Generator/Synthesizer Guitar Effect With Expression Pedal:

this is a great pedal. one of the things that irritates me is that when people spend over 200 dollars they always seem to be negative about their pedals. this pedal is awesome. it lets you do multiple effects when you buy the optional foot controller you can have 6 completelt unique and experemental tones for great live play. a special note is that the "freez and gliss" mode is one of the coolest effects that i have ever used. both are worth hundreds themselves. give this a shot and you wont be dissapointed. oh by the way, it's true bypass so there you go.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix HOG Octave Generator/Synthesizer Guitar Effect With Expression Pedal:

For that price you get Boss's GT8 thats the best of the best, and it has all effects and its a good brand in the other hand if you get this, your buying a brand you don't even know and just like a couple of effects, get GT-8, THAT is worth the money,.
