The award winning HOG (Harmonic Octave Generator) earned kudos from players and reviewers alike because of its ability to generate ten, totally polyphonic and glitch free voices ranging from two octaves below to four above the instrument's pitch-all without the need for a special pickup or instrument mods of any kind.
Now EHX takes things to the next level with the HOG2. In addition to all of the great features of the original HOG, it offers: sophisticated new algorithms to improve the quality of the ten generated octaves and harmonics as well as the Freeze function, full MIDI control over all parameters and presets, Master Volume for added control and convenience. Volume levels are saved as part of a preset, and save and recall up to 100 preset programs with the optional foot controller (versus six with the original HOG).

Lots of cool sounds in this unit. However, to toggle and store presets you have to buy the footswitch for another 80$. The expression pedal it comes with is complete garbage. Good luck using it at a gig. If you already have an expression pedal youre not using thats one thing, but I do not (not to mention you'll have the old one just laying around). After pricing a decent exp pedal, I would have been into this unit for almost 700$. I got frustrated with eletro harmonix and returned it.
If the company would include the footswitch and not the piece of garbage expression pedal it would be a totally different situation.
