    I don't think it's been released yet.
  3. i dont think it has either. But good god i want one. I really hope it works with bass. And if it does what it looks like, octaves (like the pog) and good synth, and i noticed some other wah, octave bend, pitch bend and other things like this aswell written on it. *drools*

    Endorsing artist:see profile.
    of Electro Harmonix informed me that yes it can be used for Electric Bass and from it's discription I see no reason why it couldn't be.

    Here are it's features

    The Electro-Harmonix HOG is a totally polyphonic guitar synthesizer,
    giving the user complete control of up to 10 interval pitches.
    can unveil an entirely new tone potential with anything from extreme
    bass to powerful multi-octave chords, including fifth and third
    intervals. Dedicated Filtering and envelope control, with numerous
    options, make the HOG a must-have performance instrument. Features

    . 10 intervals of pitch can be mixed by using 10 surface faders,
    which may then be played polyphonically with perfect tracking:
    . 2 octaves down . 1 octave + a perfect fifth

    . 1 octaves down . 2 octaves up
    . Original pitch . 2 octaves up + a major
    . One Fifth up . 3 octaves up
    . 1 octave up . 4 octaves up

    . Six unique expression modes are accessible via the Exp button,
    expression pedal and MIDI. Octave bends, step bends, volume control,
    user defined Wah-Wah, Filter control, plus two unique freeze modes:
    Freeze Gliss, an expression pedal freezes a chord while letting you
    over it having your frozen notes gliss to meet your new notes. The
    Freeze Volume freezes a chord allowing you to control its volume, with
    an expression pedal, as you play on top of it.

    . An external "whammy" pedal and a momentary surface mounted Exp
    button, allow for real-time access and manipulation of all of the above
    expression modes. A new level of performance interaction.

    . Dual Envelope generators that work with both the higher and
    lower frequency ranges. Allows unique contours of attack and release in
    two different harmonic regions.

    . 12 dB per octave 2-pole low pass filter and resonance controls
    manipulate the tone while also being a critical element within the
    expression modes.

    . Surface Foot access for True Bypass, expression control and
    envelope engagement.

    . Store 6 presets when you use the optional external
    Electro-Harmonix foot controller.

    The HOG is now available at leading music stores
  5. Nice. It's a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Nice! Can't wait to see a demo video on ehx.com

    I think I'm gonna have to pick one up. I wanted a POG, a whammy, a volume pedal and some sort of envelope and synth style effects, this appears to be all of them in one. Glad to hear it should work on bass too, just don't try the two octave down function :D.
  7. List price been published yet?

    I figure I'll start saving now for the HOG, the external foot controller, expression pedal, and a pedal board to stick all of them on.


    at $718 list, it'll prolly end up being in the $450-$550 range for retaiil...

    expensive? but still less than a Microsynth, POG, wah, etc etc. etc.
