Ok, first of all, I am a HUGE fan of the soul-pog pedal and use it almost every time I pick up my guitar.
However, there was something I noticed on the box when I first bought the pedal that really bugged me… The box says “Your polyphonic fusion”. Allow me to nerd out for a second; Polyphony is when there are at least two or more different melodic lines played at once. And the octaver effect that comes from the Nano-pog part of the pedal simply adds octaves to a pre-existing melody, or, whatever is being played. This creates a unison but by NO means creates polyphony.
I have since seen many people use ‘polyphonic’ to describe this pedal and the octaver and I physically cringe whenever this happens.
I can’t be the only one that has noticed this…
It’s not about what the pedal generates, but about what it can handle.
Back in the day, most octavers were only capable of (“correctly”) octaving single note lines and would get very messy with multiple notes played at once, let alone bigger chords.
Polyphonic in octavers means “capable of octaving multiple notes played at once, or even big chords”.
I’m aware of it making sense within the context of it being an octaver, but it’s still incorrect, especially in the vague statements (e.g: ‘your polyphonic fusion’).
