NAMM 2013 PRESS RELEASE: Electro-Harmonix proudly introduces the new H.O.G.2. This second generation Harmonic Octave Generator - Guitar Synthesizer builds upon the legacy of the critically acclaimed H.O.G.

The H.O.G.2 packs all the polyphonic power of the original unit, but based on feedback from users and new developments in technology, the new H.O.G.2 offers a number of enhancements and upgrades. These include:

  • Improved algorithms for each synthesized voice and for freeze capture. The new voices sound clearer and the freeze capture is smoother

An Expression Mode permits +/- 1 octave bends, 1 step pitch bends, plus control over freeze + gliss, freeze + volume, wah wah and filter frequency.

A new H.O.G.2 Foot Controller is also available. It allows you to easily save and recall up to 100 presets in the H.O.G.2 main unit. Presets 0 through 11 are factory presets specially designed to give the user a wide array of sounds available from the H.O.G.2.
