Octaves, Organs and a whole lot more!
I've used POG2's for guitar and bass. On guitar, I tend to use them for volume swells and choruses in combination with additionals pedals (Phase 90s and various delays to create the Mike Einziger wall of effects). In recent times, I've been using them more on bass (in fact, two of them) to creat sub octaves, or fake guitar sounds. I have posted various youtube covers of songs by Royal Blood showing what fun you can have, search for me and you'll find them! Overall, great fun and a great pedal to expand any musician's sound.
Looking for an octaver? Looking for some synth-like swells blended to your clean signal? Or looking for a organ simulator? For all the three questions the answer is POG 2. It's incredibly versatile and accuratte in its polyphonic octave generation.
Holy Grail of octavers for a reason
Although I mostly use this pedal as a straight octave up/down, it does so much more. I've used it for a 12-string effect, and also for making my guitar sound like a synthesizer (I think I used the Mellotron Flutes or Celeste preset)--when I play the recording, no one believes me that I did that with a strat and a POG 2... The problem with these pedals is that they can way more than you will ever need. Even if you use a preset or two, you inevitably never touch about 90% of the functionality. But I guess that can be a good problem to have.
The POG2 puts off a very unique, uncommon sound.
I received my POG2 as a birthday present, however after a trip to Guitar Center I found its retail price to be about $250.00 U.S. The POG2 can make a variety of sounds, and can make your guitar almost identical in sound to an organ. Overall, the POG2 by Electro-Harmonix is a very nice pedal that can provide a variety of sounds.
The POG 2 by Electro-Harmonix is a fantastic octave pedal. Giving you control over -2, -1, +1 and +2 octaves, plus the direct signal, you can create a whole slew of amazing sounds. Throw in controls for a filter, attack and detune, and you can create amazing effects. The tracking is top notch. To put this in perspective, I had an Eventide PitchFactor (simply amazing pedal), yet I was mostly after octave pitch effects, and I think the POG 2 does a better job. You can even save presets, and there is a mod from www.microdesignum.cz that gives you MIDI control as well!
