:-) that sounds like fun.

I thought the Micro Pog actually had quite noticeable latency just on
the pitch up octave.
I also didn't like the out of tuneness of the high octave, which
I guess is designed for "12 guitar string" sound.

It's essentially a harmoniser type algorithm with smaller
time slices than usual, and really good pitch tracking.

Ah...that sounds interesting
