I'm in a Rock Trio so I use a Micropog for the very thing you want.
Its all about blend with the Micro. It def can sound fake if you have too much of the upper octave but if you hit the sweet spot its perfect.
I use a Rat clone -- Micropog -- a little reverb -- the occasional Flange to get surprisingly fat & wide sounding when the G player takes a lead ride. (sometimes I leave it on thru the whole song
PS: I've tried a lot of other options for this (not the Octron) but the Micropog has been the best by far ... still cant believe how good it tracks!
