The NEXUS-SL: Studio or Live. Sleek, powerful, portable. Unparalleled bass tones and a huge selection of features in a simple 2U rackmount format.
BRITISH DESIGN AND ENGINEERING
The NEXUS-SL was designed and conceived with the simple goal of making the best bass amplifier on the market. Hear it and believe!
CLASS D TUBE HYBRID
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. A pioneering design solution to give the very best of both worlds!
SIMPLE WITH HIDDEN DEPTHS
The ergonomic front panel design allows great bass tone to be found easily. The bottom row of control knobs houses tone shaping: Keep it simple and set everything to 12 o’clock or work through the EQ options to find the sweet spot. Head to the top row to instantly dial in bass-sympathetic digital fx : Space (Reverb or Chorus) and Interval (Octaves or 5ths).
TILT AND TOUCH
Laney developed two unique functions to control the NEXUS-SL power stage. ‘Tilt’ is an instant ‘EQ seesaw’ – turn right to cut through, turn left to for a rounder sound. ‘Touch’ adjusts output response – turn right to add touch sensitivity, turn left for a tighter, faster response.
The back panel houses Laney’s ‘T-USB’ interface allowing connection direct into a DAW and simultaneous recording of both dry signal and amped tone. The original dry signal recording can then be RE-AMPED through the NEXUS-SL to find the exact recorded tone desired for the mix.
