    Right now it mostly stays on these settings for phattening up my tonality to catastrophic seismicness:

    Dry: Full on
    Sub: 1 o'clock
    Oct Up: off

    What you use yours for?

    I use it with my Hematoma only. Sub full, suboctave 3o'clock, octave up 11o'clock.

    I use it in a pretty similar way to OptimusPrime except with a Fulltone Bassdrive. I also have been using it with my Bassballs - nice and dirty/funky!

    The only its been used in a band setting is for big organ tones. Turn on the POG and the messdrive, and just let it sustain out in all its octave-goodness.

    I use it before my blowtorch with
    dry: 12 o'clock
    down: 9 o'clock
    up: 12 o'clock.

    It creates a really fat fuzzed out sound!

    I use it as a splitter (ie, i use both outs) so my pog is set to unity octave-up and zero everything else.
     
  10. i use it with my delay for some awesome sounds.

    I use it for Toccata et Fuga. (big POG) :smug:


    I have yet to master the piece, but the parts I can play sound so cool. I'm thinking of adding a "rotary speaker effect to it.

    Thank you, eyvindwa, for mentioning WHERE. There's a big difference whether you put POGs BEFORE or AFTER distortion.

    I use mine AFTER.

    I'm really considering putting mine in a loop with my Hematoma, because that's all I use it with.

    I use mine either into a filter for synthy destruction, or into a distortion box to make my guitarist feel redundant.:D
     
  16. after so it doesn't track very well? spose if you put it before most distortion will just clip

    No - it tracks great!

    I'd say that this property of 'tracking' really only applies to the "binary" "frequency divider" type of octaver (OC-2 type), where you get glitches and worbles. That is not an issue with the POGs.

    The main reason I always use it AFTER distortion is because of the killer-fat sounding resonant Low Pass the (original) POG has. Even If you don't use the octaves - just the 'dry' signal. When you put the filter switch into the 'high-Q' position (position '3'), AFTER a distortion: Oh baby. Y'don't even know how your distortions can sound, until you've heard'em through a real-live RESONANT LOW PASS.

    If I didn't have the LP (as in µPOG), I'd be more inclined to use it before.
