Is your band still enforcing the "no synthesizer" policy?

        One of my guitars is "synth ready", but I've never got around to buying a guitar synth to go with it.

            There was a lot of faux guitar on keys in that show. This is my favorite Jan Hammer jam from vice!

              Yeah.People like that sometimes make me think El, Yahweh, or whatever His name is, should reconsider the whole ‘no flood policy’....

                It's like the vowels of the synthesizer world.

                  I’ve always assumed the Micro Synth used much older, different technology, whereas the pedals from recent years were based on the POG tech. I’ve got a POG 2, and it seems like with enough tweaking and some other filters, etc, I could make sounds very close to their “x9” pedals. But the micro synth was originally from decades ago.

                  Just guessing/inferring on my part.
                  I think you're right. The x9 pedals sound like they are built on the polyphonic pitch shifting technology from the POG. They might just be specialized versions of the POG. The original Micro Synth is different, it's an octave fuzz with a synth filter and an envelope effect that's like a vintage Attack Delay or Boss Slow Gear.

                      This doesn't make synth.

                        Speaking of Jan Hammer, this album is worth a listen if you haven't heard it.

                              That's why they don't play Wheel of Fortune in Hawai'ian.

                                He would have made a terrible Italian, but they were very popular in Italy in the early days.
