Add some awesome retro tape echo to your tone.

The NUX Tape Core is a modern-day stomp box that offers classic Tape Echo tone. Just like the original Tape Echo, the NUX Tape Core features three reproduction heads yielding seven different combinations of delay sounds. All of the natural sound, decay, modulation was created with the company's cutting-edge NUX TS/AC Technology!

Tape Core is professional, convenient, and designed to echo your vision.

The Original Tape Machine
Here’s how the original Tape-Echo Machine worked:

The Recording Head (which is not needed in the digital version) is on the far left. The ones to the right are what NUX uses to digitally recreate the sound using TS/AC Technology.

The Digital Recreation
As in the original version, 3 Repro-Tape Heads allows for 7 different combinations. The distance between the Repro-Tape Heads determines the delay sound.

Infinite Feedback Feature
The maximum parameters of the REPEAT knob can be used to recreate the classic Infinite Feedback Oscillation effect that was, until now, only available on the physical machine. This trippy sci-fi effect, made popular by artists like Pink Floyd and The Steve Miller Band, allows for super-cool song intros, interludes, and endings.

Bypass / T-Lock
Tape Core Deluxe comes with a 3-way toggle-switch allowing you to change between 2 Bypass modes and NUX’s unique Tone Lock (T-Lock) function.
-T-LOCK MODE: A physical dead-man switch designed to protect your parameter tweaks during your performance.
-NORMAL MODE: True Bypass which bypasses the effects circuit.
-TAIL MODE: Buffered Tail Bypass which maintains the effect of the last note played.

Tape Core Editor
Want to customize your Tape Core Pedal? Experience Tape Core Editor by going to: and download the software. And remember to use DFU to update the firmware (bin) so you can enjoy the ultimate Tape Core Editor experience!

Repro-Head Editor
You can edit in Real-Time or Note Pattern mode by using the SYNC slider. This allows you to use actual musical notes to create an infinite combination of groove patterns.

7 Combo Selector
This is used to re-assign your 7 Combinations, turn On/Off the AUTO TAP, and/or KILL DRY functions.

Auto Tap
You can use this function to turn On/Off NUX’s patented Smart-Tap Tempo. When not using Smart-Tap Tempo you need to HOLD your foot-switch 2 seconds and wait for LED indicator light to change color then TAP your speed. With Smart Tap Temp, just start TAPPING, and it automatically knows that anything past 2 TAPS is your desired tempo.

Kill Dry
Dry meaning, “No effect” and Wet meaning, “With effects,” there are situations where you need to “Kill the Dry”, for example: if you connect Tape Core Deluxe to an amp that is already running both the Wet and Dry signal in Parallel ( side-by-side ). The KILL DRY switch allows you to turn On / Off your Dry signal so there are no signal conflicts.

EQ Adjust
The original Tape-Echo Machine had adjustment dials that allowed you to tweak some additional parameters: WOW, FLUTTER, BASS, REVERB, SATURATION and TREBLE. So, to get as close to the original as possible, NUX included them.
