    My band wants to cover this song and the intro has a cool part with a POG and some delay. I don't own a POG and I'm wondering is there anything in the Line 6 M9 that could pull that organ sound??

    Not really.

    the closest thing would be the octo verb with the mix up high. That'll get you more of the U2/Edge shimmer sound which is like an organ pitch shifted up an octave while playing in the middle of the grand canyon. Could be cool but it won't sound like a POG.

    Sounds a lot like an electric piano or a farfisa more than a guitar with a POG. You could get close with a smart harmony and tremolo or analog chorus set to vibe on the m series maybe...

    Pretty sure J mayer said he used a POG on that one. OCtoverb is as close as your gonna get... I wonder if you can use it, an octave down on the pitch shifter, and a delay? lol...

    Or... line 6 can use the exact same algorithm they already use in the Octo verb and tweak it to create a standalone polyphonic pitch shifter ala the POG.

    Sigh...

    Definitely a POG, there is a video on YouTube of how they wrote and recorded that song all in one day at some famous studio space in NYC. JM had tables full of effects pedals and on that song he used a POG through a L6 DL4.

    I think the Zoom G3 which is a product similar to an M9 that has an organ sound similar to the POG but not quite as nice.

    Ouch... the poly pitchshifter on the G3 is BAD. Its Nowhere near the POG in terms of tracking or glitch free operation.

    Thanks for all the replies!! I own a M9 was hoping to come close to faking the POG sound. I wish Line 6 would add one, it don't seem like it would be that hard for them.

    Its the Z-Organ effect. Latent response, but it can get that tone.

    This is my wish. I'd love to be able to sell my POG for the very little I use it... but when I do use it... only it will do.
