MIDI Control for Electro Harmonix POG2

A guitar effect POG2 from Electro Harmonix is a polyphonic octave generator which can make the sound similar to synth, organ or twelve-string guitar from guitar signal using digital signal processing. The resulting sound is so excellent that any attempt to resynthesis using multieffects from various reputable companies can't be compared. Unfortunately, it has not got any MIDI control.

POG2 with built in MIDI control

Using our electronic kit it is possible to control the POG2 by either Program Change or Control Change MIDI command. The principle of operation is that the built-in MIDI controller electronically simulates turning and pressing the control knob (encoder) and replaces an activity which would have to be carried out during the guitar playing. Instead, just by pressing a button on a MIDI footswitch controller, the POG2 is automatically set to the preset corresponding to the number of Program Change/Control Change (1-8) or set to a sound corresponding to the parameters of the sliders without preset (Program Change 9 or more or Control Change value 0 or 9 or more).

MIDI controller for Electro Harmonix POG2 guitar effect

This small electronic kit facilitates controlling POG2 using foot MIDI controller or from computer by DAW software. The module doesn't affect neither the original sound nor functionality. It works in parallel with the knob. Moreover, if you move the knob, the mod isn't lost and after receiving appropriate MIDI message it sets correct program regardless of the previously set program.
