Electro-Harmonix HOG
The Electro-Harmonix HOG Guitar Synthesizer is an in depth guitar effects pedal boasting a number of awesome features. The pedal is made up of analog components, with 1/4" connections for everything from input and output to an expression pedal (which comes with it) and a foot controller. The pedal requires nine volt power, which comes with the pedal. The HOG isn't rackable as it is a stomp box.


The configuration of the Electro-Harmonix HOG Guitar Synthesizer will definitely take some time to get used to, as there is an almost endless amount of things that you can do with the pedal. The pedal is split up into two sections - a harmonic octave generator and a guitar synthesizer. It is kind of a mix between the POG (polyphonic octave generator) and the micro synth, but this is better than both of them in my opinion. It would take too long to list all of the parameters, but it does have sections for the octaves, a filter, an envelope, expression modes, and in and output leveling. The manual is definitely a good thing to have around...


The sounds that are possible with the Electro-Harmonix HOG Guitar Synthesizer are some of the most unique and outstanding tones that I've heard come out of a guitar. Like the with the POG, you can literally make your guitar sound like an organ. The octave sliders act as draw bars, making the possibilities virtually endless. The synth sounds are also outstanding, as this is the most realistic sounding guitar synthesizer that I've heard that doesn't require a pick up or a special guitar. Many of the other sounds possible with the HOG are virtually indescribable and must be heard for yourself...


While I don't currently own a Electro-Harmonix HOG Guitar Synthesizer, I have used it enough to know that I want to own one very much! This will probably be the next pedal that I add to my arsenal, but it certainly does cost a good amount of money, but not without good reason. Those who are fans of both the POG and the Micro Synth should be very happy to see this conglomeration of the two. Out of any of the guitar synthesizer pedals out there, this one not only tracks and play the best, but sounds the best and offers the most versatility. The HOG is absolutely a must have for all creative and experimental guitar players and beyond.

Electro-Harmonix HOG
as written on the pedal HOG (-> octave harmonic generator) guitar synthesizer.
with two soccer controlling.

no USB port, but the jack, and a MIDI

I do not want opened the pedal to see if c is the digital or analog.

the dimension of its huge! meter in hand dimensions in mm.
236/157 (without jack) / 52 (without pads and without the switch remains.)
fot without controlling the switch.

9DC MA500

on the pedal it says made in USA ... I do not know, it commits only what willing to believe


simply used to obtain the one thing ...
am you know what you want you looking, be you do not know and you not try pushing the buttons you


with a low c is not really useful,
against scratches by a c is awfully good.
I expected to test voice with keyboard.

against by the freeze is great with the expression pedal or the switch on the pedal (the middle), in my opinion much better than the single pedal freeze

against by the button setting conversely, of ca.
made the adjustment and imagine I'll get sound support has octave higher; I press the button, I press the pedal down in octave sound, so I do not know if c is the thing for me ^ m while the program.


I have a octaver of the same brand, but I've never tested anything else, even this pedal, I chopper on ebay including postage A302 euro (20 euro shipping)

(Nine Thomman price: € 607 July 12, 2012)

Volume pedal, expression of M-Audio Expression exp 2m cable 35,00 € TTC
Electro harmonix hog foot controller 89,00 € TTC

the goal was to have a freeze and Morpheus Bomber or a whammy.
side with the electro harmonix, and all the stuff you can do with the fader. I think not.

I would do ... not without testing the Eventide PitchFactor, and Morpheus Bomber or a whammy.

I always want more, but it lacks a chorus!

Electro-Harmonix HOG
Well, let's go for the dcrire bte.
Basically it's an octave, it is to say synthtise sound, but not just one octave.
It can multiply the sound of frquence per quarter (two octaves below) up to 8) 4 octaves above), to the fifth and third.
Then we can apply several effects on the GNR many of which take on their full size as an external expression pedal (any operation), such as volume, wah wah, filter and freeze in Note.

The Difference a harmonizer is that you can play chords without problem


Trs is complicated to use because we do not know where to start.
For once we do not understand what we did at beginners. But it is easy to options because even without understanding what is happening derrire is fairly intuitive (mostly). Say that having a good time with.

There is an External Casing extension to save the presets. It is on all the buttons are dreglsa every time you put it in the bag, so each time a rergler if we did not like me.


I use it on guitar and vocals, and as often Electro Harmonix, in addition to being an effect, it adds a whole section in the game crative
The possibilities are standard:
- Playing bass with the guitar
- Playing with the guitar synth (synth sound is truly stunning)
- Add power the guitar, because addition of bass and double notes.
- Freeze function is trs crative

The voice is to comply with laughter, test on all frquences


I've had eight months.
It's worth it, nothing else like this. Besides, I do not know or is not even on AudioFanzine class, I have to search each time.
I think I'll keep it on the voice, it gives me a kind of alien choir

It's really the kind of effect that I love: it is one thing but the fact that perfection with every imaginable rglages and even more. I love it!

Electro-Harmonix HOG
Well everything has been said, we will not extend ...

is polyphonic, it's great ...


Well not easy at first but got used to it quickly and there are good sound on ...
some modes are obsolete for me (wah), but the freeze is great!

Using the expression pedal M-Audio supplied is required to operate the pedal ... making it more compared to Pog ...

Manual in English but just push each slider to understand what it does!

The case for the 6 presets is a plus, it does not record its presets, but then I turn up 2 or 3 presets, so I not need the 6 presets for now ... € 110 and more and more it is abused after being released more than € 409 and then it is very cumbersome on the pedalboard ...


I use the Hog with my guitar, the sound is beautiful ...
However little attention to HP, I feel at home on my 600 champion some frequencies not go very well (if too high or too low).
But since the 12 "Hot Rod's no worry, I put another 10!


I use it for one month,

for the moment with the group, I do not use sufficiently the times but it will be an undeniable on compos!

I had not tried before, it is found even in Lille or the Pog found more easily.
Indeed, so found that SMI and Feeling have never in stock for orders in the store ... (See topic on guitariste.com)
Purchased to Playback fdp € 409 in nine, I congratulate them for 48 hours of time (even with a holiday!)

In conclusion, pedal expensive but quality is top issue, and creativity has no limits! Let alone those who dream of s'avoir play and have a Hammond organ at home!
