Prometheus is a 2012 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, etc.), Described by some as an Alien prequel, it stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.

Sound mixer, Ron Bartlett, talks about the soundtrack that he and fellow re-recording mixer, Doug Hemphill, worked on.

“When I learned that we were going to mix Prometheus” for Ridley Scott, I was very excited,” adds Bartlett. “I wanted to tie in some of the original aesthetics from the first Alien film. We studied the voice processing of the android character in Alien and re-created that sound very closely. It involved a lot of fun experimenting with various vintage guitar pedals — and some new ones as well.” (source Motion Picture Editors Guild)

One of the pedals was the EHX Ring Thing Single Sideband modulator and another was the Micro POG, Polyphonic Octave Generator. Here are a couple of photos from the Prometheus Blu-Ray Documentary.

Whether winning Downbeat’s prestigious Critic’s Poll as “Guitarist of the Year” or a Grammy Award for “Best Contemporary Jazz Album,” Bill Frisell is always stretching the boundaries that define contemporary jazz guitar.

His use of effects to shape and shade the timbre of his electric guitar play a large part in creating a sound that is uniquely his own.

This recent photo shows Bill at the Village Vanguard in New York City with his Electro-Harmonix FREEZE Sound Retainer and Micro POG, Polyphonic Octave Generator. The FREEZE is a new addition to Bill’s tone-shaping palette and he had this to say to EHX founder, Mike Matthews, and daughter, Suzi Matthews:

“This Freeze thing is off the scale…a serious musical instrument…already making impossible things possible…really…this is something else!”

Enjoy Deerhoof, live in the studio, covering a song from an obscure 1967 movie soundtrack. The performance is from New, Improved, LIVE, a video series by The Bay Bridged (San Francisco Bay Area independent music blog) and New, Improved Recording (Oakland recording studio).

The video starts with Deerhoof guitarrists John Dieterich (plaid shirt) and Ed Rodriguez (green shirt) playing thier HOG and Micro POG (respetively), followed by a look at the studio. The song itself kicks in at about 2:10.

Ed tells us: "The EHX Micro POG has gotten the 'what pedal are you using?' question more than anything else I have ever owned. It's simple to use with great sound quality. It tracks better than any other pedal I've ever used, the Boss PS-5, Digitech Whammy Pedals, everything."

Ed continues: "John (Dieterich) uses the HOG as well and we were both overwhelmed at the possibilities it opened up. It's rare to find pedals you know will always have a place in your set up. In the video of 'Let's Dance the Jet' John opens the song with the HOG making jet sounds and I come in on the melody using the Micro POG and the Holy Grail Plus. Enjoy!"

Be sure to catch Deerhoof on tour. For photos from the session, see the New, Improved, LIVE Facebook album.

YouTuber Ketil Strand nails JS Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor -- Ketil notes: "I'm using the Micro POG. It's on all the time on the guitar track to fatten up the sound. It's mixed together with the Axon guitar synth organ sound."
