Micro Pog bypass issues?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by KansasCityBassDude, Jan 1, 2020.


  1. I’m considering getting a Micro Pog but am wondering if anyone has had any issues with its buffered bypass. I’m not a true bypass nut but prefer using true bypass over bad buffering. I’ve heard that the buffer in the Micro Pog might not be great especially going into fuzz which is something I like to do with my octave pedals.

    I’d love to hear from those who own or have owned the Micro Pog.

    I may be wrong, but I think the footswitch bypass is true and the dry out is buffered (not bypassable).
     
  3. just looked at the manual. It says both are buffered at 250.

    Totally right.
    I don't hear any difference with or without the MP in the signal chain and tons and tons of people put it before their other effects with no complaints about the bypass/buffered sound.

    Yep. I use one to split my signal in a dual rig. No issues with either outputs.

    And yes. I use dirt on both channels....also .....no issues ime.

    I assume you like heavy weird music??
    Want a link to my bands Bandcamp?? It's intentional really raw. All takes live. No punch in...no edits

    I shows how I split my signal in bass and "guitar" rig.
    I use a custom on off switch for both channels.
    If you like cool. If you don't ....even better makes you an honest dude.

    :)

    Split rig dudes unite! I may be the opposite of you guys since Im playing baritones into a guitar rig and a sub octave bass rig though.

    It's all good my friend.

    Here's a link to my band.
    Already 5 or 6 new ones almost ready for the next "album".......

    All live in studio. No punch in. No edits. All loops and samples are also live using a looper pedal and fx pedals.

    If anyone has any questions....I'd be more than happy to answer to all my fellow nerds, geeks and weirdos like me.

    :)

    Raw.

    the buffer in the micro pog is great, which is why it's likely to be no good in front of your fuzz. (and yes both outs on it are buffered)

    classic fuzz pedals want a totally non-buffered signal, as in no wireless, no boss tuner and no active bass even.

    unless fuzz at the very front of everything works for your sound, you might actually be on the lookout for a fuzz-type pedal that can take buffered signals, something a lot of them can't without just collapsing into mush.

    the EHX bass big muff seems to be one, mine works well post-buffer.

    That's because the first stage in a Big Muff IS a buffer.
