    Anyone seen a good demo of this yet? i found one not so good clip from NAMM that said it was in it, but it only sounded like The Rainbow Machine to me.

    Nope - none out there yet.
    And yes, the demo posted on HCFX a while back only shows the pedal with the Rainbow Machine on and messing with the signal the whole time.

    From what I heard at NAMM; it does some cool organ sounds, but the underlying faux-tape warble is always present. If that can be remedied, it'd be a more real estate friendly alternative to a POG2 (even the Micro POG) for organ sounds.

    Played it at NAMM. For me, it was better in theory/in my head. There is a flutter/modulation that never goes away, even with the Lag/Choir knobs set to zero. It definitely has a cool vibe, but is not quite as versatile as the POG2, which I will be keeping after hearing the Organizer.

    Jamie said it's not meant to be like the POG2/HOG. Here is his direct quote:

    Earthquaker is in dire need of a good demo.

    Yeah, ditto on that...But, if it can do a clean poly octave up and down (without warble), ala MicroPOG, then I'd still get it.

    Maybe there's an internal trimpot?

    I believe that a device based on oscillation-derived octaves cannot, by definition, NOT oscillate. Or something... Other circuit designs it would have digital-based synthesis, and everyone fies on that.

    EQD likes original designs... Why mess with the pog sound, its been done. At least they're innovating... I like the idea of this better anyways... I don't oike clean octaves... Sounds cheesy a lot of the time

    I've already lost that battle in respect to the Rainbow Machine. I should have that Monday.

    I expect once the Organizer is released, it will not be far from arriving in my mailbox.

    In the Premiereguitars demo from Namm, there's quite some decent demonstration of the Organizer, starting at 3:00.



    I hoped it would be more like a Pog II in a small box ... but this doesn't sound as good as a Pog II to me.

    I think it is pretty cool sounding, but the guy in the video has no idea what to play. Thats a little annoying, but no big deal. It does sound keyboardy, I'm in.

    yep, would be good to see a demo with more inspired playing :)

    Still, I think the Pog II sounds better ...



    And I also like the organ-style sounds better that I get with M5+Timeline (though they can't be played fast):

    Demo is up on E.D. website. It's more like a movie trailer than an actual demo though.

    Very disappointed with that demo they put up. Did not show going through settings, just very vague.
