The Very Best Thing About ZOIA

12th July, 2023 Dave Miner

We’ve been thrilled with the response to the ZOIA.  
We've sold nearly ten thousand units since its introduction in 2019, and the pedal continues to win accolades. Most recently, Guitar World named it “Best Modulation Pedal for Sonic Explorers” in their roundup of the best modulation pedals for 2023. It won “Best Effects & Processing Hardware” in the Sound On Sound Awards 2023, as selected by their readers. The ZOIA Euroburo also took first place “by an absolute mile” in MusicRadar’s “Favourite New Eurorack Gear of 2022”.
For us, the best thing about ZOIA is the user community who have created and shared a wealth of music, videos, and patches. We’d like to recognize some members who generously provided their time, feedback, and insight during the development of the new Sampler module. We’d also like to share links to their music, website, social channels, and ZOIA patches. Please check them out and show them some love!

We’d also like to thank all of the ZOIA users who participated in our Bug Hunt contest for the 3.0 beta firmware. It was a tremendous help as we work on the final release. Our winner was Jason James Moore, who selected a ZOIA Euroburo as his prize. You can check out his music below:

To everybody in the ZOIA community, we couldn’t do this without you, we are so grateful for your support, and it is a privilege to be part of your creative process. On behalf of everybody at Empress Effects, thank you!
