HOG2

DESCRIPTION

The EHX HOG2 is an Octave and Harmonic Generator/Guitar Synthesizer that can simultaneously generate multiple octaves and harmonics from your input signal. Whether you play single notes, arpeggios or full chords, the HOG2 will track every note you play. Built-in to the HOG2 are 7 Expression Modes that enable you to modify your sounds using a standard Expression Pedal, a MIDI Controller, or the Expression Button on the HOG2 itself. Further sound sculpting is achieved through an Amplitude Envelope Generator and a 2nd-Order Low Pass Resonant Filter.

  • Sophisticated new algorithms improve the quality of the ten generated octaves and harmonics as well as the Freeze function
  • Full MIDI control over all parameters and presets
  • A Master Volume for added control and convenience. Volume levels are saved as part of a preset
  • 10 Controllable harmonic intervals and 7 Expression modes
  • Freeze modes holds a note or chord so you can play over it or slide to new notes like a keyboardist playing portamento
  • Amplitude envelope controls your attack or decay speeds
  • Dedicated resonant filtering with sweepable frequency control
  • Separate lower and upper harmonic amplitude envelopes
  • Save and recall up to 100 preset programs with the optional Foot Controller (sold separately)
  • External expression pedal included
  • Power adapter included

ORIGINAL SLIDER
Controls the output volume of the ORIGINAL voice. The ORIGINAL voice is your Dry signal sent through the Expression Modes, Envelope and Filter, so it is treated just like all other voices with a white cap.
+5TH SLIDER
Controls the output volume of the +5TH voice.
+1 OCTAVE SLIDER
Controls the output volume of the +1 OCTAVE voice.

SPECTRAL GATE BUTTON AND LED
When the SPECTRAL GATE LED is lit, the Spectral Gate function is active and in the signal path.
ENVELOPE LOWER & UPPER SLIDERS
The Envelope sliders control the amplitude Attack or Decay of the voices. The LOWER slider controls the lower 5 voices (-2 Octaves to +1 Octave); the UPPER slider controls the upper 5 voices (+1 Octave +5th to +4 Octaves).
ENVELOPE FOOTSWITCH
Toggles the Envelope section ON / OFF.
FILTER FREQUENCY SLIDER
Controls the cutoff or peak frequency of the 2nd-Order lowpass filter.
FILTER RESONANCE SLIDER
Controls the resonance, Q or peak of the filter.
EXP. MODE SWITCH AND LEDs
The HOG2 has 7 different Expression modes. Each time you press the EXP. MODE button the HOG2 selects the next mode in a clockwise rotation.
EXP. REVERSE SWITCH AND LED
This button reverses the direction of the Expression Mode currently selected.
EXP. BUTTON FOOTSWITCH
This momentary footswitch enables you to take advantage of the 7 Expression Modes without needing an Expression Pedal.
EXP. PEDAL JACK
Plug the Expression Pedal into this jack.
MIDI IN JACK
The MIDI connector on the HOG2 allows external control over just above every parameter on the HOG2’s top panel as well as loading/saving presets.
FOOTSWITCH JACK
Connect the Electro-Harmonix HOG2 Foot Controller to this jack using a standard ¼” instrument cable to access up to 100 presets.

“This is a very open ended pedal, so the only real limitation is your imagination. If it were stolen or lost I would buy it again.”
