Ahead of the 2018 NAMM Show, Empress Effects shared this sneak preview of the Zoia – a compact modular effects pedal.
The Zoia lets you use modules to construct instruments, effects and utilities. Custom effects can then be saved to SD card.
- Stereo operation (including Empress effect algorithms)
- MIDI i/o
- CV & clock in
- Save patches as supermodules to speed up creation
- Random create function to jumpstart or invigorate your process
- Blocks can all be linked freely to multiple sources & destinations
- Extensive favorites system: even moments can be favorited, to quickly return to a safe place if your patch goes awry
Pricing and Availability
Tentative release date is Spring, 2018, priced at US $450.
