IT'S NU-X (like "New X")

The Mod Core from Nu>X is a powerhouse of good sounding modulation effects and features.
For about the same price as a single low priced phase shifter you can have an encyclopedia reference of all the classic modulation effects. Here are the effects NuX has packed into the Mod Core:

You choose the effect type with a rotary switch. Other control knobs include:
- Rate (or speed)
- Depth (amount of effect)
- Tweak (depends on effect)
The Tweak knob adjusts different features of the various effects, you might say it is context sensitive.
BUILD QUALITY & INDUSTRY STANDARD 9-VOLT OPERATION
The build quality on these pedals is really good. The enclosure is a heavy cast metal box. The use of chrome plating and silk screen imprinting is all very high quality. The shiny blue metal flake paint job is vivid without looking overdone. The NuX Mod Core is a good looking pedal.
SOUND QUALITY - FULL STEREO
I bought this pedal for the "Pan" feature, I needed it for a song I was recording. It does the Pan effect beautifully. The "Chorus" sound also caught my ear and immediately I was using it on a song. The Mod Core uses digital technology to achieve the sounds and they all sound good and usable.
The Mod Core has dual 1/4" inputs and outputs, this allows the pedal to achieve full stereo performance. You can also use it with a Mono-Input to Stereo-Output configuration or classic mono.
There are better sounding modulation pedals but not without spending a lot more money and achieving marginal subjective differences. For under 100-bucks you can get a single pedal that does a nice job on all the included effects. Mod Core is a winner. I wish this was around when I was in my 20's.
Thanks for reading High on Technology, Good Music To You!
