Multi-Effects pedals are an interesting bag.
I’ve worked with the Zoia before, and I walked away with a bad taste in my mouth. That is largely due to the way I want to use the pedal.
The Zoia had every effect I wanted, but felt super limited by the hardware. I traded my Zoia out for dedicated effects pedals a few months before they dropped the big CPU usage update, so I never got to experience the improvements to it.
That said, due to being disappointed by it, I thought I’d pursue effects with dedicated pedals. In fact I ended up with a decent amount of them, as well as a patch bay, to handle the added dimension and routing to the sounds I enjoy exploring.
Well hot damn was that a mistake on my end. I could’ve easily purchased a mod duo x and saved the frustration and heartache. Alas, at the time I had no idea about MOD, and I said I could buy several pedals for the cost.
I ended up snagging a dwarf, and I have to say, WOW.
It has everything I want, and way more for me to explore. I haven’t really even dug much into the midi aspect of the device yet, but some of the effects give me the exact control and sound that I want and more.
Here is some of the space I’ve saved and the gear I’ve pulled out.
No, I don’t miss them. I pulled the pedals out of the set up and I have not once thought about putting them back in.
The MOD Dwarf handles everything I need right now, and I’m really considering a DUO X if I can offload gear. This pedal has really cleaned me up Without sacrificing a sound that I’m after. I will no doubt need to snag another MOD device to handle my outlier gear.
Thanks to the MOD team and their vision, I have finally been able to consolidate to a single working desk
Really appreciate it!
