Here is the setting that I use for Apache. For Man Of Mystery & Frightened City I add feedback. Compared to my Apache patch on the H&C, this sounds identical.
Emielvisser, those settings that you showed aren't really any use for Shadows Music, I tried them.
I have two more Nux pedals coming next week so I will be able to use four seperate heads, each with their own level and feedback.
I will at some point make recordings to show how good this is, but I am currently working with the Fishman Tripleplay system and getting my head around that and it isn't easy, but it's something that I will use in our shows.
The point about the Nux Tape Core is, I'm delighted with it which is all I care about and I got four of the little beauties for under £200. I've sold all the other stuff and got my money back. :)

I tried your setting, sounds good.
I wonder what the result will be with four Nux' s.
For use at home it will be no problem, but on stage to change the settings might take some time.

I'm pleased that my settings are useful to you Emiel.
I used to use four separate stomp boxes on my Helix when I had it, each set to a different head timing from the shortest to the longest tap, allowing me to choose the pattern that I needed. The longest tap had the feedback added which for my purposes was what was needed and gave the 'Wonderful Land' ripple. The problem with the Helix was that it is computer based and it crashed mid performance at the Sheffield City Hall. Luckily it was only briefly and it recovered, but none the less unacceptable. I moved it on.
I will set the four Nux pedals up side by side on my pedal board in much the same way and see how well they do the job, though I can work comfortably with just two, but at the price I've paid, these are great value and have really been bought as back up. They will be here by Wednesday so we'll see how things turn out. :)

I managed to get a good setting for Wonderful Land its not perfect but close.
FYI..The image of the wav file the top one (stereo) is how it should be and the bottom is the NUX.
I think you are on the right track Dave with the four pedals, that makes sense and you should be able to get very accurate settings and a great sound.
I think I am going to resurrect my Zoom G3x, and experiment with the NUX when I have more time. I have given the NUX to a friend to have a play with so you might not see any more post from me on this subject for a little while.
Thanks for all the info, it has been very helpful.
Regards
Steve

Hi Steve,
Good example but I think the echo's are a bit to early as you can see also on the information you added, very interesting.
The NUX is a very intriguing device that invites to experiment, though for the comfort I prefer my ZOOM MS50G.
Cheers,
Emiel

I'm expecting my two additional Nux Tape Core pedals today and look forward to linking them together and experimenting with the massive combinations that will be to hand.
In effect I will have a maximum of twelve heads to play with and will be able to control some individual degree of level and feedback to a decent extent.
Looking forward to passing the time. :)

Well I lined the four Nux Pedals up side by side on the pedal board and fired everything up, but soon discovered that I don't need more than two in order to do the job for my needs. Can I make four single pedals sound like the Shadows - yes, but it's no better or worse than the effect of just using two of them.
I'm happy to have them as back up at £94 for the pair. It certainly makes the prices of the other stuff look somewhat highly inflated. I can get back to my guitar synth now. :lol:
