HOG Guitar Synthesizer
The Electro-Harmonix HOG is a totally polyphonic guitar synthesizer, giving the user complete control of up to 10 interval pitches. Musicians can unveil an entirely new tone potential with anything from extreme sub bass to powerful multi-octave chords, including fifth and third intervals. Dedicated Filtering and envelope control, with numerous setup options, make the HOG a must-have performance instrument. And NO special pickup is required and NO glitches are created.
10 intervals of pitch can be mixed by using 10 surface faders, which may then be played polyphonically with perfect tracking:
· 1 octaves down · 1 octave + a perfect fifth
· 2 octaves down · 2 octaves up
· Original pitch · 2 octaves up + a major third
· 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: With Freeze Gliss, an expression pedal freezes a chord while letting you play 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. I think this may beat the original WH-1 Whammy pedal.
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 performance presets when you use the optional external Electro-Harmonix foot controller. The 16 second delay controller will work OK if you already have one.
Comes with a special 9Ldc-500mA power supply for USA, optional UK or Euro power supplies.HOG Instructions (.pdf)
