    Hi Guys -

    Anyone has experience with either (or both) of these pedals? I wanna ask how it performs during gigs. I'm interested in getting one, but I wanted to ask first if there are any gain issues when using this pedal live. I borrowed a friend's TC Electronic Sub n Up, it sounds great but I'm having a hard time using it live because whenever I step on it, the pedal throws off my unity gain and it messes up the whole band's sound. I'll return this soon and start looking for a different octave pedal with an Octave up and down. EHX came to mind immediately.

    Please let me know if there are similar issues with either the Micro or Nano POG and which between the two should I get?

    Thanks guys! Appreciate your inputs!

    Actually have owned and used all three (and a POG2) Currently using the Nano.
    No unity gain issues with any of them.

    The POG's, to my ears, sound much better than the Sub'n'Up.
    The POG2, while amazing, was overkill for my use.

    While I replaced my Micro with a Nano to free up board space,
    I've been thinking about going back to the Micro because I like it's tone more.

    One advantage the Nano has is it only needs 35ma power.
    The Micro and POG2 both need 200ma.
    Far more than many outputs of built in board supplies.

    Thanks, that's reassuring.

    What are the differences in tone between the Micro and Nano? Why did you like the tone on the Micro more?

    Seems to be a hair fuller and the Nano has a little "warble" on certain triads that the Micro didn't.
    Its not a huge difference and I haven't decided whether to go back yet.
