A New Horizon for the Delay & Reverb Experience!
The NUX Atlantic pedal covers several Delay and Reverb types that are very representative in history: 60’s Tape-Echo, 70’s BBD Analog Delay, 80’s Digital Delay, Spring Reverb, Plate Reverb and Hall Reverb. The latest algorithms with Core Image Technology from NUX offers you not only these classic effects, but also modern Shimmer and Freeze effects that inspire you to create dreamy musical ideas! Its patented Smart TAP function automatically understands if you want to turn on/off the delay or tap in the tempo.
NUX Atlantic Delay effects
70’s (40ms – 400ms): Retro-delay meets modern technology, without losing the realistic BBD-effected repeats, so essential for capturing the 70’s retro feel.
60’s (55ms – 550ms): A warm & dusty tape-echo machine effect, packed with an array of analog-only goodies. Saturated colors that turn any sound into vintage. Tweak the Repeat knob to the max and use the Time knob to get an experience, just like the real Tape-Echo Machine.
80’s (80ms – 800ms): A digital era invention, crystal clear repeats. Digitally-copied clean repeats carry your signal without absolutely zero color particles. This is the best option if you don’t want to mix your favorite chorus with another colorization effect–or your favorite modulation effect.
Instantly synch-up your delays with the tempo you want to accompany. The NUX patented Smart TAP function is more convenient and smarter than normal tap tempo function.
You don’t have to confuse yourself by holding down the footswitch to enter the tap tempo mode. Now with the Smart TAP, you can simply tap footswitch to set the tempo anytime. TAP TEMPO Speed range is 125 ms – 1500 ms for all delay types.
Before using the TAP TEMPO, you can set the TAP Division to control the delay speed and delay pattern.
For example, it can be very difficult to use TAP tempo to set a super fast slap-back delay effect to play Rockabilly or Rock ‘n Roll. By setting the Time knob to 1/4 and use the TAP TEMPO to sync the delay speed with the drum beat, you will be able to get the delay speed 4 times faster than your tapping speed. There you have it!
Another suggestion: If the drumbeat is too fast to catch with the TAP TEMPO. Use 1/2 and tap the switch in half speed of the tempo, the delay speed will be twice as fast as your tapping. Problem solved.
NUX Atlantic Reverb effects
Spring Reverb: Creates a polyphonic atmosphere filter that catches the sound reflections from deep down spring reverb tank. You can adjust the tank size with the level knob and set the reflection distance with the decay knob.
Plate Reverb & Shimmer: Straight and clean reflections inside a flat-walled room. You can control the room-size with the Level knob and then tweak the Delay bounce point with the Decay knob.
If you hold down the Reverb switch, straight reflections will be heated and swirled throughout the inside of the room creating a Shimmer effect.
Hall Reverb: The sound of a well-designed hall. Whether the hall size is big or small, the reflections will be emitted by wall furniture. You can adjust the interior hall-size, from a small garage to a huge structure with the Level knob and increase or decrease the number of objects on the walls with the Decay knob. Less decay means more objects and faster reflection fading.
