The NUX TIME CORE DELUXE MKII is a delay pedal with 7 different types and a phrase looper; including ΦPhi Digital Delay, Analog Delay, Modulation Delay, Tape Echo, Pan Delay, Verb Delay, Reverse Delay and Sound On Sound. You can switch the delay type by using the Type rotary switch.
ΦPhi Digital Delay is a digital delay with golden ratio 2nd repeat head. It makes your guitar sound more musical. With no-brain tweaking, setup the desired sub-division, smart tap tempo, you’re ready to go.
ΦPhi Digital Delay Range: 80ms~1000ms
Analog Delay is based on the timeless BBD (Bucket Brigade Device) delay. It produces a very warm sound with natural treble decay. Very suitable for ballad solo’s with romantic atmosphere. Our unique algorithm replicates the physical infinity oscillation feedback while you adjust the time knob from max to min quickly.
Analog Delay Range: 40ms~403ms
Modulation Delay is based on the Ibanez DML modulation delay. The Chorus gets lush and rich, not at all what you would expect from an ancient digital pedal. Holding the footswitch enters Alt mode (the LED indicator will flash ORANGE.), then the Repeat knob will edit the Mod parameter of this delay. Short press the footswitch again to quit Alt mode.
Modulation Delay Range: 20ms~1500ms
Tape Echo is based on the legendary Space Echo machine. We digitally recreated the retro-feel of a real tape and capstan configuration. Tape Echo has the high-frequency saturation and low-end decay of magnetic tape. It’s gently modulated for added richness and color. Adjust the time knob from max to min quickly, and you’ll get the infinity feedback effect.
Tape Echo Range: 55ms~552ms
Pan Delay simply moves a mono signal to different places in the stereo field. Our Pan Delay algorithm changes ordinary panning to “gourmet” panning that involves not only stereo placement but interesting imaging possibilities. It will allow pan moves to feel less extreme where you need placements to feel natural, and more extreme when you want to create sonic ear-candy inside your headphones.
Pan Delay Range: 80ms~1000ms
Verb Delay features Plate Reverb algorithm with Digital Delay to create an ambient atmosphere. Hold the footswitch to enter to Alt mode to tweak the Verb parameter through Repeat knob, short press the footswitch to quit Alt mode.
Verb Delay: 80ms~1000ms
Reverse Delay, a truly classic effect: Record a guitar part on tape. Flip the tape over. Play it back. Made popular by guitar legend Jimi Hendrix, the Reverse Delay still inspires people to let their hair down and try out new sonic possibilities.
Reverse Delay Range: 320ms~1240ms
S.O.S, Sound On Sound is a 40 seconds stereo phrase looper for guitarists to practice and create new ideas. While in playback, you can quit S.O.S to select another delay mode and use the effect to play, without interrupting the playback. (Note: When quitting S.O.S mode to another delay, the delay effect will be engaged.)

An Intuitive User Interface
Adjusts the delay time. Set the knob parameter to your desired sub-division, then use the Smart Tap Tempo to get sub-division delay time related to tap tempo.
Time range related to the models:
ΦPhi Digital Delay: 80ms~1000ms
Analog Delay: 40ms~ 403ms
Modulation Delay: 20ms ~ 1500ms
Tape Echo: 55ms ~ 552ms
Pan Delay: 80ms ~ 1000ms
Verb Delay: 80ms ~ 1000ms
Reverse Delay: 320ms ~ 1240ms
*Note: The maximum delay time is 1580ms by Smart Tap Tempo.
Adjusts the wet/dry mixing level of delay，from 0% up to 100% when you turn the knob clockwise.
Delay Type knob
Adjusts the repeat numbers of delay. In Mod D. or Verb, hold the footswitch to enter to Alt mode, in the meantime, the LED indicator will flash ORANGE, and Repeat knob will become Mod or Verb parameter. Short press the footswitch to quit Alt mode.
Selects the type of delay.
This switch sets the bypass mode and Tone Lock. Selecting Tail sets the Buffer-Bypass to keep the delay with spillover while disengaged. TB means True-Bypass, there is no spillover while you disengage the effect. T.Lock means Tone Lock, an innovative function to store and lock your current parameter setting to prevent accidents on stage. After you set the parameters, just toggle the switch to T.Lock position, then the LED indicator will flash GREEN 2 times to store and lock the parameters. Then you can engage or disengage the effect by the footswitch and no worries.
Press once to engage/disengage the effect. Press twice, it will become Smart Tap Tempo. The delay time is related to tap tempo and current sub-division parameter. (The FS indicator will flash as current BPM.)
Note: The maximum delay time of tap tempo is 1580ms.
When the effect is engaged, the FS indicator will show “Red”. While the effect is disengaged, the FS indicator will turn off.
Footswitch & FS Indicator
In S.O.S mode, the footswitch operation is like a regular looper pedal. While REC, the LED indicator shows RED, while PLAY, the LED indicator shows GREEN, while OVERDUB, the LED indicator shows ORANGE.
In Mod.D & Verb style, holding the footswitch will enter Alt mode (the LED indicator will flash ORANGE), you can then adjust the Mod or Verb parameters via the Repeat knob. Short press the footswitch to quit Alt mode.
Kill Dry: Without any USB connection, hold the footswitch to boot-up the pedal, if the LED indicator flash GREEN 3 times, the KILL DRY is engaged. If the LED indicator flashes RED 3 times, the KILL DRY is disengaged. (Normal)
Use ONLY: 9V Negative Tip power with more than 150mA. (The power consumption is less than 125mA.)
The USB-C port is for firmware updates. Connect USB cable to a PC and hold the footswitch to boot-up the device and to enter the DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode. Once connected you can perform firmware updates using DFU updater software.

The audio inputs on the right side of this pedal are standard 1/4″ jacks (mono/TS). Connect your guitar to the In (mono) audio input on the right side of your pedal using a regular 1/4″ instrument cable.
The pedal also accepts stereo signals using a pair of 1/4″ TS cables.
The audio outputs on the left side of this pedal are standard 1/4″ jacks (mono/TS). Connect the audio output of your pedal to the next device in the signal chain, either with a single cable or with a pair of 1/4″ cables if both inputs are used.
- To the amp’s input
- In the amp’s FX loop
If the amp’s FX loop is parallel, you will need to engage Kill Dry.
Kill Dry: Without USB connection, hold the footswitch to boot-up the pedal, if the LED indicator flash GREEN 3 times, the KILL DRY is engaged. If the LED indicator flashes RED 3 times, the KILL DRY is disengaged. (Normal)
