Empress Zoia looks cool: https://youtu.be/rsFT5Ta9RBQ
cant get my head around it!!!
Zoia is a compact grid of musical anything. Use modules to construct instruments, effects, utilities. Save and transfer them via SD. It is what you need it to be.
Features: - Stereo operation (including Empress effect algorithms) - MIDI i/o - CV & clock in - Save patches as supermodules to speed up creation - Ongoing updates (new modules!) - Random create function to jumpstart or invigorate your process - Blocks can all be linked freely to multiple sources & destinations - Extensive favourites system: even moments can be favourited, to quickly return to a safe place if your patch goes awry
This is an introduction. Tentative release information: Spring, $450.
Wow! I’m pretty glad I held off on going back to the Octatrack for my portable FX Processor!
Seems like a stand-alone monome. Not bad, not bad at all.
Like an Fx Rack in Abelton with macro control. Stereo i/o, fun device.
Looks cool, any word of a price tag? Bit like organelle with more buttons and works standalone rather than programming it in the computer, I think that’s what I’m looking at anyway?
Nice! Extremely tiny buttons though…
I saw 450 when googling.
What a great lil box! And it includes most of the hyped empress FX algos? Brilliant.
Yeah i want it bad! Zoia and organelle together with octatrack will be crazy. Let the GAS begin looks up sperm and plasma donation centers nearby
hahahah this is absolutely mental
Yes, this trend to make everything tiny is obnoxious… The elektron AR/A4/OT mk1 size is perfect IMO.
I want to buy more gear to avoid finishing tracks
What? You actually RECORD your music?
Really interesting. But why so small? The screen is tiny as f€%§ !
Seriously- with something like this, a simi-modular like the O-Coast, then your initial modular setup wouldn’t need to be extravagant. Maybe something for sampling or something.
We really are living in the golden age
This one deserves its own thread! Does it have stereo i/o?
Zoia is super interesting! I wonder if you you can use it as a sequencer too. At least it was hinted at and offer MIDI in and out. Even if it couldn’t this would be a really super useful and forward thinking FX box and looper.
thats retro, its 2018 baby
