Empress Effects ZOIA

ZOIA is an all-new pedal concept from Empress Effects—a modular synthesis and effect processing platform all built into a single, super-powerful stompbox. ZOIA is great for guitarists, synthesists, producers, and noisemakers who want a dedicated hardware platform for designing their own effects, instruments, and controllers.

ZOIA's RGB pushbutton grid and OLED screen aid the user in creating chains of Interface Modules, Analysis Modules, Audio Modules, CV Modules, and Effects that act together to create living, organic synthesizer and effect processing structures. With over 80 modules currently available, ZOIA can already be everything from a simple Fuzz or Delay to a complex chain of effects, to a modular synthesizer or MIDI controller—it's all up to you to decide! Up to 64 patches can be stored on an SD card and easily switched between, making impossible effect combinations immediately accessible—as if, at the press of a button, your entire pedalboard could rearrange itself, or turn into a sequenced synthesizer, or basically anything you can dream up!

Allowing everything from classic guitar effects (tremolos, phasers, reverbs, etc.) to audio switching, intentional aliasing, signal multiplication, and much more, ZOIA is an endless playground of sonic delight...one that rewards extended excursions into the digital unknown. Use it in conjunction with other stompboxes, in a desktop setup with a keyboard synth, as a processor for a modular synth, or as an instrument all its own. ZOIA knows no limits.

Empress Effects Zoia is a fully programmable modular synthesis and effects environment inside of a pedal.
