NUX Atlantic

Instruments Category: 

The Atlantic (either delay or reverb) produces one of the cleanest and clearest effects I’ve heard. That may not sit well for everyone, as some musicians may prefer either delay or reverb to be toned down (a lower tone so that it stays hidden in the background as opposed to popping out as it does).

However, for those who want a bold delay or reverb, and I suspect more so for the ambient player who wants swirling and pulsating effects to have a dominant role in the overall sound, then the Atlantic does not disappoint. With 32-bit quality you can hear the differences among the Analog Delay, Tape Echo and Digital Delay. The same is true with the Spring Reverb, Plate Reverb and Hall Reverb. I say that without hesitation since many ‘space’ pedals do not have the clarity of the Atlantic, and can sound slightly muddy or muffled in comparison (thus making the delay or reverb less obvious, sometimes impossible, to hear the differences among types, e.g., analog vs. tape). The sound quality is an obvious plus for the Atlantic, but also being able to dial into various patterns prior to a Tap Tempo adds a lot to the ambience of the delay, whether you want a full note, ¾, ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/6 or 1/8th. And the Shimmer effect of the Reverb (accessed by holding down the Reverb’s footswitch) is nothing short of awesome when you want to add that extra dimension and sustain to your playing.
