A crystal clear river flowing, transparent. The Rivulet design concept ! Old-school Analog Chorus has always been warm but it was hungry for dynamic completion.
NUX’s modern-tech DSP yields a perfect combination of both worlds: analog and digital.
To achieve all of the Rivulet Chorus objectives, our engineers had to developed an algorithm that mimics the principle of BBD chips–the key component of Analog Chorus effect.
Rivulet’s low-frequency oscillation provides the traditional analog chorus tone discerning ears have come to expect in a true chorus pedal.
Dynamic tone and noise elimination capabilities put Rivulet into a completely separate category from cheap analog pedals.
Quality-grade BBD chips in large quantity have become incredibly rare, so this method isn’t practical for making an affordable analog chorus device.
Using DSP technology, NUX is able to offer a mini-pedal with a contrasting array of chorus tones.
We selected 3 essentials, each with a voice that can be upgraded with a quick, user-friendly firmware download.
Here are NUX’s 3 essential picks:
Konsequent Digital Delay
The Konsequent Mini-Delay comes with a back story.
Excellent digital delay is more than a simple repetition of sound. It’s a dynamic creation of consecutive sound, a desired consequence. When great sound engineers mix multiple delay onto a guitar recording track, there is an inherent challenge: Increasing the rhythmic complexity without losing definition.
The desired effects can range from trippy to groovy or a blend of both. Konsequent packs an array of internal processors that replicate the very sound experienced studio engineers were perfecting in the 1980’s using expensive rack-mount digital delay systems.
The Konsequent does it at a fraction of the cost, and with the convenience of a mini-pedal. Put simply, NUX’s Konsequent Mini Pedal has re-defined delay !
NUX’s Dynamic Digital Processor, specifically designed to reduce annoying interference caused by audio peak.
NUX’s Analog Processor plus Saturation-simulator offering an abundance of overdrive range.
GROOVE PATTERN ( Dotted 8 ). Multi-Delay Output.
REGULAR PATTERN ( Simple Delay ). Warm, yet purposefully defined.
Oceanic Digital Reverb
NUX Oceanic, a reverb effect as vast and deep as its name. Its minimalistic design sails past the competition giving you endless parameter choices with one single knob. Studio-grade hardware performance makes it an essential in your arsenal of effects.
Room, Hall, and Square-wave or even Outer-space reverb. It’s all there, with a simple twist of a knob.
Pressing the footswitch activates a green-light indicator, transforming the DECAY knob into a wet/dry mix control.
Demanding guitarists want a reverb that doesn’t drown-out their tone, and Oceanic was designed with this in mind. Instead of dull and shallow you’ll get a deep full-sounding reverb that’s so seamless, you might even forget your jamming with it.
To make Oceanic a great digital reverb pedal, we used a powerful 32-bit DSP to process the complexity of its algorithm. To make it a unique reverb pedal, we programmed loads of studio-sound shaping parameters into that algorithm: Envelope Control, Multi-stage Cascade Diffuser, Multi-band Tone Decay Adjustment, Random Adjustment of Tail-tone Delay, and lots more ! We even built in a compressor mold to help fine-tune your reverb dynamics. NUX is, once again, proud to re-define the mini pedal with Oceanic, a truly extraordinary reverb pedal.
Use Micro USB-port to upgrade the firmware.
Oceanic can be switched in between true-bypass and buffer bypass.
NUX Monterey Vibe, born to recreate the grand, yet complex, psychedelic rock guitar sound of the 1960’s and 70’s. It features all of the classic Uni-vibe style selections: Chorus, Rotary-Speaker, and Phaser pedal. We modernized the original 4 stage phaser circuit ( a pulsating bulb surrounded by 4 photo-resistors ) by replacing it with a powerful 32Bit floating DSP to process our custom algorithm. What was the outcome? A perfect mimic of the complex physical-phenomena of its original analog circuitry.
NUX Monterey Vibe generates a truly unique effect tone; a mix of chorus, tremolo, rotary, and phaser. This unique tone can be found in Pink Floyd’s ‘Breathe’, Robin Trower’s ‘Bridge of Sighs’, and the haunting audio mood created for ‘Machine Gun’ by Jimi Hendrix.
The earliest Uni-Vibe effect pedal came out in the 1960‘s. Cutting-edge guitarists were seeking a replacement for the heavy rotary speaker amplifier–configured from a standard amplifier for the electronic pipe organ. The original Leslie speakers did have a charm of their own, but it was more than compensated for by gaining the phaser effect, and the ease-of-use of a simple pedal configuration.
Just like the traditional Uni-Vibe pedal, you can switch between Chorus ( the Uni-vibe effect ) or Vibrato, by simply holding the foot-switch. In Chorus mode, the mix of Phaser and dry guitar signals produces a classic Rotary sound. In Vibrato mode, your pitch modulates between high and low. Both modes yield a rich, vintage vibe at any speed, intensity, or volume.
Tube Man Overdrive
Tube man is a smooth overdrive pedal which has brilliant midrange character, it allows your tone cutting edge while retaining guitars natural sonic qualities You can use it with a clean amp to deliver bluesy rhythm tone or push a hot amp into limitless sustain for solos.
Shopping for a British distortion pedal? Try NUX Brownie!
Classical British rock tones of 1970’s are packed into this little box.
How it works?
By using a hybrid of circuits, we create preamp and power tube distortion characteristics. You’ll be amazed to hear the warm and organic tone reproduced by it.
A special designed BJT input stage makes this distortion pedal breakup in a way when the preamp tube starts to distort. Also, Brownie has an asymmetrical clipping circuit with which you can simulate some of the characteristics of a tube amplifier. It can also keep the bottom tight by processing bass frequencies from getting muddy when they are distorted.
NUX Brownie uses a low-pass tone control filter to simulate the Variac effect (lower the voltage going into the amplifier) for rounding of your tone. The range of tone is controlled yet very useful in dialing the high end response.
The power clipping circuit is crafted from modern low noise op-amp and two red LED. It can create symmetrical clipping that distort both half of the signal and keep the sound smooth. True bypass circuits with a high quality TPDP mechanical foot switch makes the bypass signal clarity.
