Original and exciting effects with the highest possible sound quality in every pedal. Empress aim to maximize the tonal possibilities with innovative features while remaining focused on providing an intuitive user experience and keeping the footprint on the pedalboard minimal. Their goal is to inspire musicians and give them the tools to create any sound they can dream of (and even some they can't).
Empress artists include Andy Summers, Adrian Belew, Brad Paisley, Bootsy Collins, Devin Townsend and John Scofield.
ZOIA - With the ZOIA modular synthesizer you can build your own custom effects, synthesizers, midi controllers and virtual pedal boards. They've even created modules for all a guitarist's standard effects.
Echo System - The Dual Engine functionality allows any 2 of these delays to be used together, routed in either parallel, series or left/right configurations.
Compressor MKII - The original Compressor, released in 2011, quickly became a favourite among guitar and bass players who were searching for something more than the typical oversimplified controls found on most compressor pedals. Now, based on Empress's user feedback, their original Compressor is now even better.
