They tend to skip 4 as it’s unlucky in Japan (or something). I think the PQ-4 might have been the only “4” they’ve released.

OC-3 came out in 2003.

Ah, I knew about 4 being unlucky but hadn't made the connection with Boss naming conventions.

A possible Micro POG killer, finally??

Not even EHX's own Nano, Pitchfork etc. is as good as the OG.. .but this Boss has a few extra features... hmmm. 🤔

A nifty "play with the pedal" widget 1/4 down the page here: https://www.boss.info/global/products/oc-5/

Although the Nano POG has crummy latency compared to the Micro, the tonality was always pretty similar. It seems like the OC-5 is very SUBZ focussed; I guess it's just got a lot of high-pass filtering done to it, much like that TC Sub N Up octaver:

It's super overtoneyyyy

There’s even a DD-8 now. Seeing it made me feel old.

Seems to have a more "natural" sound than my Micro POG. Although maybe hard to tell with all teh gain.

I watched Rabea's video too, it definitely suits a thick driven sound because the CLANK of the Micro POG can sound pretty phoney at times.

I'm not still not convinced it tracks as well as the POG though (watched a bunch of shit because I'm a massive loser), but that Range and LOWEST setting is a winner, esp as the Octave Up isn't affected. Will probs get one.

Why the fuck does Milhouse have Pogs in his PYJAMA pockets??

Next you're gonna tell me he's had two spaghetti meals in one day

It does, I had to mentally spellcheck it once I typed it.

I guess it's a very 'lowercase' word; few people in print are yelling about pyjamas.

it's because we read using the shapes of familiar groups of letterforms, once we've got the hang of reading. That's why Disney's logo says "Disney", not "DISNEY". Capital letters just look like big rectangles.

When I was wee I always though it was Disnep, because of their shite typography. I remember watching tapes when I was three or four and being annoyed because people kept calling them Disney films but they said Disnep at the start.

PYJAMA looks weird but so too does pyjama. Crap word.

I was a big fan of Gnid Blyton books as a small child.

I pronounced it Metro Glodwyn Mayer until halfway through my first Film Studies module.

Yes. I also was frustrated at how there were .s after Mrs. and Mr.

As a protest, four year old me would read those as full stops, knowing that it broke the sentence and made the work unintelligible. I hadn't yet found out how abbreviations worked.

I'd think "this is stupid, these aren't supposed to be here, I'm going to ruin the book because of it."
