    don't know much other than I want one :)

    any pedal named after polyanna is worth checking out. After googling it, it surely looks like a micropog killer. gotta do something about that paint though :)

    OK,... Pollyanna's are finally shipping.

    Just to clarify, this is an analog octave pedal, with an octavia-like octave up (with a slightly stronger octave sound), and a 1 and 2 octaves down, pure square-wave, commodore 64 type of sound. It's a pretty crazy thing, but a lot of fun in real life.

    We will hopefully have the website update with samples and more details next week.

    I called it a microPOG killer in a thread that MI himself was posting in and he responded that it was different. More glitchy synth stuff rather than pure octaves.

    I got one last week! Just a day after i got my Octron2 and it is more the glitchy synth sound especially the two octaves down.

    Which video game riff did he start out that video with? I've heard it before somewhere.

    Been a few days since i watched it but i think it's a bit of Mario Bros. You might have seen people on you tube play it.

    That is pretty sweet and fairly new sounding.

    pog is a pitch shifter, this is a synth i wouldn't compare one to the other that's crazy talk...

    so is this monophonic synth or polyphonic synth?

    I have one, definitely not a pog killer. Lower octaves are really glitched and videogame like. It's analog, wouldn't it have to be digital to do polyphonic?

    it's been a while, anyone using this? more to add to discussion?

    It appears there is no fuzz/distortion on this pedal, is that correct?
