Electro-Harmonix H.O.G. the limelight

Harmonic Octave Generator moves to version 2

Electro-Harmonix H.O.G.2Harmonic Octave Generator 2 from Electro-HarmonixPress Release: This second generation Harmonic Octave Generator – Guitar Synthesizer builds upon the legacy of the critically acclaimed H.O.G.

The H.O.G.2 packs all the polyphonic power of the original unit, but based on feedback from users and new developments in technology, the new H.O.G.2 offers a number of enhancements and upgrades. These include:

  • Improved algorithms for each synthesized voice and for freeze capture. The new voices sound clearer and the freeze capture is smoother
  • Full MIDI control. Every parameter on the HOG2 can now be controlled by MIDI
  • Presets can be loaded and stored via MIDI
  • A new, optional Foot Controller that allows the user to store and load up to 100 presets.
  • Now compatible with the industry standard 9Volt DC/200mA center negative power supply

The polyphonic H.O.G.2 still offers glitch-free tracking and complete control of up to 10 interval pitches without the need for special pickups. It provides a freeze mode with glissando, independent attack and decay controls and dedicated resonant filtering with a sweepable frequency control. An Expression Mode permits +/- 1 octave bends, 1 step pitch bends, plus control over freeze + gliss, freeze + volume, wah wah and filter frequency.

A new H.O.G.2 Foot Controller is also available. It allows you to easily save and recall up to 100 presets in the H.O.G.2 main unit. Presets 0 through 11 are factory presets specially designed to give the user a wide array of sounds available from the H.O.G.2.

The H.O.G.2 will be available for around £350/$475 and the foot controller will cost around £120/$135.
