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

 

  • Full MIDI control. Every parameter on the HOG2 can now be controlled by MIDI

 

  • Presets can be loaded and stored via MIDI

 

  • A new, optional Foot Controller that allows the user to store and load up to 100 presets.

 

  • Now compatible with the industry standard 9VoltDC/200mA center negative power supply

 

The polyphonic H.O.G.2 still offers glitch-free tracking and complete control of up to 10 interval pitches without the need for special pickups. It provides a freeze mode with glissando, independent attack and decay controls and dedicated resonant filtering with a sweepable frequency control. 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.

 

The H.O.G. 2 carries a U.S. List Price of $634.94. The H.O.G. 2 Foot Controller is priced at U.S. List $181.26.
