The NEXUS-SL was designed and conceived with the simple goal of making the best bass amplifier on the market. Hear it and believe! The NEXUS-SL’s power amplifier section combines the power and portability of cutting-edge Class D technology with the natural warmth, compression and dynamic range that only a tube can give: A high voltage ECC83 tube sits between the preamplifier and the 1000W RMS power section. The ergonomic front panel design allows great bass tone to be found easily. The bottom row of control knobs houses tone shaping, the top row houses bass-sympathetic digital effects : Space (Reverb or Chorus) and Interval (Octaves or 5ths). Laney developed two unique functions to control the NEXUS-SL power stage. ‘Tilt’ is an instant 'EQ seesaw’ and ‘Touch’ adjusts the feel of the output response.
Tilt is a dynamic, powerful SEE SAW EQ control. This control has a central neutral position. Turning the control clockwise increases the overall mid to high frequencies and decreases the lows thereby giving your sound more presence, which can be useful for cutting through live band situations. Turning the control anti clockwise reduces the overall mid to high frequencies and increases the lows making your overall sound rounder.
The T-USB interface supplies both a dry signal and the processed signal – split left and right to your DAW – directly into either your PC/MAC or iPad*.
A re-amp socket works in conjunction with the T-USB feature on an amp and allows the original dry (left channel) signal to be re-routed back through the pre-amp and be sonically altered.
