Last updated on April 12, 2024 2:46 pm Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the NUX Loop Core Deluxe Guitar Looper, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

LOOP CORE BUNDLE includes the additional NMP-2 DUAL Footswitch which is absolutely the easiest way to switch between loop phrases. Your recordings for verse, chorus, and bridge parts, can now be seamlessly accessed utilizing the convenient DUAL footswitch.

Nothing feels better than playing your guitar along with realistic drum rhythms. Loop Core Deluxe’s all-new drum machine comes with 40 different drum rhythms (30 in 4/4, 10 in 3/4) covering different styles of genres including rock, pop, blues, jazz and much more.

3 different Stop Modes, Importing and Backing up Your Loop Phrases

To finish your playing, you can choose 3 different modes:

1- NORMAL MODE: Double-tap – Instant Stop.

2- FINISH MODE: Plays until the end of the last measure.

3- FADE OUT MODE: 10 seconds Fade-Out

Importing and Backing up Your Loop Phrases:

Connect your Loop Core Deluxe to your PC/Mac with a Mini-B USB connector to import available loop phrases or to back up yours. Loop Core Deluxe is only compatible with 24-bit/44.1kHz WAV files.

Frequency Compensation and Cabinet Simulation

To ensure the exact tone you desire, Loop Core Deluxe is designed with frequency compensation for drums and a cabinet simulator. Both are utilized through the stereo output Jacks.

Automatic Tempo Detection:

Loop Core users are already familiar with the many hidden treasures of our original Loop Core such as automatic tempo detection.  You can easily lay down a loop w/out a metronome or any drum patterns.  Add a drum pattern later, and Loop Core Deluxe will automatically process your tempo to match the pattern.    No technical details to fumble with; just enjoy your music.

Our Verdict

If you’re not like retro, the Nu-X Tape Core Deluxe delay/looper might not be for you. However, it is a cool and very cost-effective method to add the iconic Space Echo sounds into your own effects palette. These sounds are now more controllable than ever thanks to the addition of an expression pedal.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy this product has to be Amazon, due to their competitive pricing and fantastic customer service.
