Knob – Controls the output volume of
the DRY signal. The DRY signal is the
signal present at the
INPUT jack. As this knob is turned
clockwise, the volume of the DRY
signal will increase.
SUB OCTAVE Knob – Controls the
output volume of the SUB OCTAVE
signal. The SUB OCTAVE signal is
one octave below the original input
signal, half the frequency of the input
signal. As this knob is rotated
clockwise, the volume of the SUB
OCTAVE signal will increase.
OCTAVE UP Knob – Controls the
output volume of the OCTAVE UP
signal. The UP OCTAVE signal is one
octave above the original input signal
or twice the frequency of the original
input signal. The volume of the
UP OCTAVE signal will increase as
this knob is rotated clockwise.
STATUS LED – This LED indicates the
current state of the unit. When the LED
is lit up, the box is in
EFFECT mode. When the LED is off,
the box is in BYPASS mode. Pressing
the Footswitch will toggle
between effect and bypass modes.
INPUT Jack – This ¼” jack is the audio
input to the POG. The input impedance
presented at the Input
Jack is 2 MΩ.
EFFECT OUT Jack - This ¼” jack
outputs the effect. The output
impedance at this jack is 250 Ω.
DRY OUT Jack – This ¼” jack outputs
a buffered version of the input signal.
The output impedance at
this jack is 250 Ω.
9V Power Jack – Connect the output
plug from the AC Adapter that was
supplied with your Micro POG to
this jack, located at the top of the Micro
POG. The Micro POG accepts Boss
style AC Adapters.
Here are some very useful sound
settings that were designed while
developing the POG. They are
suited for the Micro POG. They can all
be seasoned to your own tastes.
12-string Guitar – Turn your 6-string
into a 12 string. Set all of the knobs to
0. Bring up the INPUT knob
to about 60%. While you are listening
to the dry signal, rotate the +1

As an additional hint, combine just a
touch of the Sub Bass for body.
8-string/16-string Bass- When used
with a 4 string, 5 string and beyond
bass, bring up your dry bass
signal and rotate the + 1 octave knob
until you hear the proper balance. A
very realistic 8 and 10 string etc
bass is easily obtained. Obviously the
more strings that you have the wider
the octave range…all tracking
Phat Bass – Turn your guitar into a
great sounding bass. Set all of the
knobs to 0. Rotate the INPUT Knob
up to 50-75%. Set the SUB OCTAVE
knob to its maximum position. Perfect
tracking and a really nice bass
sound that can add performance
bottom. Perfect for demos in your
Organ – You can do a 3 stop organ
that when used with a volume pedal
can be a very interesting pad.
