The first new model from EMMA Electronic in nearly 10 years, the ON-1 Okto-Nøjs is definitely worth the wait!
The Okto-Nøjs is actually two pedals in one – a super-accurate, fast-tracking Octave down (the Okto) combined with a dynamically responsive, synth-like Octave-Fuzz (the Nøjs).
Both sides of the circuit are 100% analog and feature high-quality buffers and true bypass switching for the best sound quality possible.
The Okto channel uses proprietary tracking circuitry to create a sub-octave that locks in fast and remains stable. The Okto can track accurately down to the open-E string of a Bass Guitar, and even lower with minor note wobble.
The Okto’s Tone control can go from round, fat subs to the hollow, nasally honk of a vintage Boss OC-2. Blend in a bit of Okto with your Dry signal to subtly thicken your bottom end, or crank it up for spot-on note doubling.
The Nøjs section is where the real fun starts. A harmonic distortion generator that creates a unique Octave-Fuzz effect, the Nøjs circuit reacts to playing dynamics to create spitting, swelling, synth-like drive sounds that are truly out of this world.
Gain, Tone & Level controls adjust the Nøjs circuit’s Fuzz section, yielding everything from smooth overdrive to squelchy foldback distortion with a blossoming note filtering.
The Nøjs control blends in a square wave sub-harmonic that can be thick & meaty or edgy & aggressive depending on the setting of the Color control.
Both Okto & Nøjs sections can be blended to taste against the Dry signal to cover a wide range of colors from subtle to extreme. Clean Octave, Dirty Drive, Overdriven Octave, Synth-Octave or any combination of these are possible with the ON-1’s simple yet power-packed control complement.
Soon to be the go-to pedal for any adventurous musician, the EMMA Okto-Nøjs packs a plethora of amazing octave and distortion sounds into a pedalboard-friendly box.
Come get your freak on with the EMMA Okto-Nøjs!
