Simply brilliant!
Wow. Wow wow wow wow, wow!

10 voices, from -2 octaves to +4 (+5 with octave pitch shift!).

Imagine this, add a 2 octaves below to your dry sound, turn on your distortion (in front of the hog 2) and then hit the spectral gate - you now have a very clean sounding octave below and a distorted guitar sound. turn on the filter and envelope features and maybe add +2 octaves above and a +5th, or a +1+5th and then set the attack and decay of both the lower voices and the higher voices to create a high attack bass note that decays quickly and a pad like upper range which sounds like angels singing(all keyboard pad sounding). Then use the expression pedal for wah, filter, step, octave or freeze and gliss features. Amazing!

I set up a nice Hammond organ sound using a fast sweeping chorus after this pedal as well, and used it as a straight octave with a fuzz and a wah for some great Jimi sounds.

The polyphony is really good, sounds very organic and I've heard no 'glitching' of sounds, even with jazz chords.

My favourite toy, and also fully midi programmable so you can add filter sweeps using simple midi commands from your DAW.

Expression pedal is lovely once you get used to it, on carpet, and easy to turn off if you tip it forwards. tipping forward again turns it on. Only thing it doesn't allow you to do it 'cock' the Wah open halfway, but you can always hold your foot on it.

Simulates 12 string, keyboard, cello, bass and loads of other weird stuff, check out the youtube videos.

Basically hours of really great quality sounds, worth every penny!

Almost a necessity for the experimental guitarist
Feghead, 30.01.2015
Not much different from the original Hog; they have replaced the input gain with a master volume slider and tweaked the algorithms so the sound quality is noticably improved but that's about it - everything else is the same.
Such a versatile pedal, everything from 12 string emulation through to organ and mellotron sounds and lots in between. With the supplied expression pedal it can do a crazy whammy-style thing, strange wah sounds and filter sweeps - and it has the ability to freeze chords and let you play over them. The (optional) foot controller is essential as it lets you store 100 presets (including the master volume level).

This pedal along with a volume pedal, reverb and delay allows you to create an infinite array of soundscapes - you can get lost for days!

There is currently nothing likke the Hog 2 on the market - recommended!
