The NUX Mod Core Deluxe mkII is an update that adds a different set of algorithms and a few useful features to an already solid and affordable stereo multi-modulation pedal concept.
Like in mkI, there are 8 different modulation effects, but the algorithms in this new version are inpsired by evergreen classic pedals like the BOSS CE-1, the Dunlop Uni-Vibe, the TC Electronic Stereo Chorus Flanger and the MXR Stereo Chorus and Phaser 100, just to mention a few, with some of them represented twice, like the TC Flanger/Chorus or the Uni-Vibe vibrato and chorus modes.
It must be highlighted that the old version of the Mod Core featured Tremolo, Rotary and Pan algorithms that are not featured in MkII.
Global Rate and Depth knobs are integrated by a Tweak control that manipulates a different parameter for each effect, while the on/off switch has a new smart Tap Tempo function.
The two stereo Ins and Outs can be used as a regular stereo pedal or you can use Out 2 as an FX loop in parallel mode (center position) that gives you two mono outs (one wet, one clean) and lets you use the Tweak knob to set the ratio between the modulated signal and the Send/Return signal from the loop.
We added the NUX Mod Core Deluxe mkII to our comprehensive article about the best multi-algorithm modulation pedals.
NUX Mod Core Deluxe mkII
Shape your tone with advanced routing. Modify your tone with Modulation
The NUX MOD CORE DELUXE MKII is a modulation pedal with 8 different types including ST.CH (Stereo Chorus), CE-1, SCF CHO, SCF FLG, SCF P.M., U-VIBE CHO, U-VIBE VIB and PH-100. You can switch the mod types by way of the Type rotary switch.
This pedal offers advanced signal routing with the included Send and Return. Easily split the mono signal to create customized effect loops! Additionally, you can parallel the 2 signals, and use the Tweak knob in Alt mode to blend the signals. Use the 3-way toggle switch to the desired position, and you are good to go.

ST.CH (Stereo Chorus) is inspired by the MXR® Stereo Chorus, which is beautiful sounding. We’ve consolidated the controls by eliminating the bass and treble knobs, now internally set at middle position, and we ‘ve eliminated the need for the bass filter altogether, which is now automatically corrected through the advancements of Core-Image ™ sound modeling.
CE-1 is based on the legendary BOSS® CE-1 which was the first chorus effect pedal on the scene in 1976. Before that, it was only available as a built-in effect on a classic jazz amplifier. The MOD CORE DELUXE MKII exactly replicates the characteristics of this pedal; that special warmth of a rich jazz atmosphere, an immediate recognizable highlight to any musician’s tone.
SCF is a tribute to the TC Electronic Stereo Chorus Flanger, one of the best modulation pedals ever made.
SCF CHO: A chorus is basically a pitch generator which mixes multiple delay signals. When the multiple delay signals are mixed with the original signal, a soft and wide sounding modulation effect is created.
SCF FLG: A flanger is based on the same principle as a chorus, although here the signal can be regenerated (like adding feedback on a delay) creating a more distinctive sounding effect.
SCF P.M.: A combination of chorus and pitch vibrato which creates a “light” chorus sound.
U-VIBE is inspired by Dunlop® Uni-Vibe® for its stunningly unique sound. Old-school Uni-vibe delivered a huge 3D sound by simulating the physical Rotating Speaker Effect; that beautiful and unforgettable sound easily associated with Hendrix’s bending facial expressions during his 60s stage performances.
U-VIBE CHO: Depth will change the depth of the sweeping effect.
U-VIBE VIB: Depth will change the degree of pitch modulation.
PH-100 is based on the MXR® PHASE 100 which has both a Speed control and a 4-waveform Intensity control, the Phase 100 offers a broad range of tones.
