Empress Effects Inc.
(Update: 10 October 2021, posted updated version 1.2, with several bug fixes)
(Update: 4 January 2020, posted newer version of the layout, incorporating firmware updates through 6.00 for Reverb and 2.06 for EchoSystem)
Here's a layout featuring controls for every traditional Empress Effects pedal currently in production (Phaser, Tremolo2, EchoSystem, and Reverb).
(No ZOIA, you say? 1) I don’t think it’s on the street yet. 2) Anyone brave enough to tackle that insanity should build their own layout. 3) ZOIA will defy any single layout... its too much MIDI power to put on a single screen. 4) If I can get my hands on one, I'll probably give it a shot all the same. But that may be a while).
Layout and user guide are posted below. Here’s a video demonstrating the layout (it’s designed for relative newcomers to MIDI):
