Once upon a time, the adventurous people at EHX did an alien audio generator otherwise known as the POG- Polyphonic Octave Generator.
In keeping up with the times, the POG evolved to include contemporary features, for instance, a bank option so you could recall your favourite settings at will. By this time, the POG was an interesting FX unit to own but those dimensions were still a put off.
Fast forward 2013, the POG sports a Big Muff foot print. Features were reduced to a pair of octave options because those were the most utilized amongst the rest.
But this year, the POG had been further shrunk into the NANO dimension retaining its 2-octave controls. This spells good news for many pedal board geek among us but what does a POG do? It is an octave generator, churning output that sounds lower/ higher than the tuning you are in. What's the benefit of sounding like that? It benefits those who are interested in having some synth-like tones or simply churning out very cosmic sounding passages in one's playing. On some days, sounding a little queer is an inspiration per se. The POG is akin to BOSS' Octave pedal but dare I say, it's a little more adventurous in its extensive format.
