****** Page 7 ****** 4. Feature Overview Congratulations on purchasing Nuxx and thank you for choosing Audiaire. At the heart of NUXX’S operation is a powerful parameter sequencer which allows up to 30 different effects types to be modified on their own independent lanes. An effect can be opened in one of 6 FX slots, and any combination of up to 10 parameters can be assigned to each of the 6 colour coded knobs within N Uxx. Nuxx can be used in two distinct modes. In its simplest form; the sequencer can be hidden and bypassed, allowing functionality as a simple 6-knob multi-FX unit. However, Nuxx truly shines when it’s sequencer and macro assignments are being harnessed to create unique sonic manipulations. Nuxx includes; 1 87 bespoke presets, a powerful modulation matrix and a 32 step sequencer which allows probability and +/- swing to be modified at a variety of rates, synced to a DAW host. In addition there are 55 global and unipolar sequencer lanes, with complex tools for modifying lane behaviour. Amongst its primary features are: • 1 87 presets designed by some of the worlds leading patch designers. • Cutting edge DSP by Sinevibes and Moditone. NUXX USER MANUAL • 30 insert FX types, including; compression, chorus, delay, distortion, decimator, flanger, phaser and barber-pole phaser, pitch shifter, low-pass, band-pass and high-pass filters, ring modulation and more. • 55 global and unipolar parameter sequencer lanes. • 6 fully assignable, colour-coded macros, responsive to real time lane automation. • Clearly laid out, scalable GUI designed for ease-of- use with one page editing. • Numerous lane modification tools including increase/ decrease and shift steps modifiers plus 10 popular arpeggios and 13 scales. • 27 different lane and global sequencer speeds. • Individual lane step mutes and independently selectable sequence lengths. • Sequencer +/- swing and probability controls.

Getting to know NUXX Macro I – Yellow Macro 2 – Orange (i) Using The Macros The Macros – Each of NUXX’S 6 macro knobs can have up to 10 parameters from any combination of 6 effects processors assigned to it. Once a Macro has been linked with an effect parameter, a corresponding lane in the sequencer section will become assigned to it. If you wish to bypass the lane, you can do so by selecting the ‘No Entry’ Icon (pictured) to the left of the assigned lane. The same effect parameter can also be assigned to a maximum of 4 macro knobs. 2 ot’ 2 a 5 7 11 12 15 21 22 22 25 27 29 31 u J GAIN CUT 5 € 7 8 9 to 11 12 15 16 17 18 21 22 22 25 29 29 30 DELAY NUXX USER MANUAL Removing FX – To remove an effect, right click the desired macro and select IDETACH’.

This value can be adjusted by clicking and dragging – giving up to 27 different speeds, from an eighth of the master tempo to 128 x it. SWING – Adjusts the sequencer rate swing +/- 100%. A negative swing plays behind the beat, where a positive swing plays ahead of the beat. CHANCE – Adjusts the probability of note lane sequence step playback. A high probability plays all steps, while a low probability plays no steps. RUN HOST 200% 1/16 SIZE SWING CHANCE TEMPO – Displays the BPM at which NUXX’S internal clock will run.

****** Page 15 ****** 15 5. Getting to know NUXX NUXX USER MANUAL Introduction The key to NUXX’S operation is its unique parameter sequencer grid. Every macro knob has its own sequencer lane with editable lane data. Each lane can run at its own unique rate and number of steps with a maximum of 32 steps per lane. IN/OUT gain and DRY/ WET mix values can also be edited in the grid. MACRO knobs and the DRY/WET slider will move in real time according to lane data.

****** Page 16 ****** 16 5. Getting to know NUXX NUXX USER MANUAL CONTROL BYPASS – Clicking this icon will toggle Lane Tools To the left of the parameter lanes are the lane tools. Hovering on the sequencer lane name display on any of the lanes will reveal its tools. These tools function as follows: ZOOM – When clicked will illuminate and show a zoomed display of lane data. Clicking again will grey out the ZOOM icon and display global sequencer lanes again. LOCK – A lane can be locked by clicking and illuminating the ‘lock’ icon to the right of its speed Locking a lane will mean its data cannot be altered by way of writing or changing preset. ON/OFF the ability to freely use the knob or fader associated with this lane. If the icon is illuminated the knob, macro or slider will NOT correspond to its sequencer lane and can be moved freely by mouse control. LANE SPEED – Each lane can run at up to 27 different rates (from an eighth of to 1/1 28 x speed) relative to the global RATE, which itself is a division of the master tempo. If the global RATE is set at 1/1 6, each of the 32 steps will represent a 1 6th note value. A lane speed selection of IX will play that speed within a lane. A lane selection of 2X will play twice as fast and so on. DICE – Randomise individual lane data with each click.

****** Page 35 ****** NUXX USER MANUAL 35 10. Global Lane Preset List Appendix B. Blurred Lines – All of the macro assignable lanes are reduced to 16 steps, with cascading data placed 3 steps apart/ triggering at 100%. Broken Triangles – All macro assignable lanes are reduced to 16 steps, with the data arranged as sequential ‘broken’ triangle. Buzzy Fades – Each of the macro assignable lanes alternate triggering in a rise and fall pattern, until step 16 – where the pattern repeats. Carved W – Across all macro assignable lanes, lane data has been set to 100% in 7 -step segments – with a large ‘W’ carved from muted steps. Diagonalz – The antithesis of Carved W, a large / W’ drawn across all 6 macro-assignable lanes. Donk – Macro lanes I – 6 are assembled to spell ‘DONK’ within repeated 6-step squares, because why not? Fluctuator – Macro lanes I -4 fall in a diagonal pattern, 3 steps apart. This pattern is offset from lanes 5 – 6, accompanied by the sequencer running to step 17. Gremlins – Each macro-assignable lane plays host to trigger alternatively, in a repetitive pattern trickling downwards. This reduces to 2 steps from lanes 3 – 6, punctuating the pattern. Half Sesame – Each macro assignable lane triggers a step apart in a downward cascade, until step 17, where macro lanes 5 & 6 end and the remaining lanes rise in turn, in 3 step segments. Little Bytes – An alternating pattern, divided between the first 3 macro lanes. Each lane triggers the data in-turn for the duration of the sequencer. – Reduced to 16 steps, macro lanes 1 – 4 play host to an extended a-step downward crescendo, at 8x speed, with macro lanes 4 & 5 alternating every second step (at regular speed) Mega Glitch – Lane steps are drawn into a randomised glitch pattern, with each lane containing muted steps which assembles a striking ‘V’ pattern within the sequencer. Mega Glitch 2 – Lanes I – 4 crescendo downwards in an offset pattern until step 8, where macros 4 & 5 continue to rise in alternate steps, ending at step 17. Nuxx – The steps are arranged to spell out your new favourite FX plug-in, Nuxxl

****** Page 36 ****** 36 10. Appendix B. NUXX USER MANUAL VV – Two large ‘V ‘s’ take centre stage of the macro-assignable lanes, in a 1 a-step repeating pattern. Onof – The steps from macro lanes I – 6 are arranged to spell out ‘ONOF’. Onou – Lanes spell ‘ONOU’. Open Sesame – A symmetrical pattern, cascading downwards every 3rd step until it reaches macro lane 6, where it rises back to the initial position. Quattro Rise – 8-step lane ramps are triggered in turn, from macro lanes I – 4. Rising Trio – Alternating Steps from macro lanes I – 3 rise in 10% increments across the lanes. Steppa – Each macro assignable lane takes turns to trigger steps (some maintaining data at 8% when not triggering at a full 100%) to create a staggered rising and falling pattern. Victory – Macros 1 -5 are arranged to trigger in sequence to form a set of uniform 8-step ‘V ‘s’ within the lanes. W2 – A 15-step repeating pattern, resembling two large ‘V Yen – A symmetrical, cross-sectioned Y, present within all macro assigned lanes. YYYY – 4 ‘Y ‘s’ are displayed across all macro assignable lanes, with step divisions ranging between I – 7 to add variation. Zebra Crossing – A symmetrical pattern present across all macro assignable lanes. Initially falling for 5 steps, and then greeted with a simultaneous lane trigger on step 6. This is repeated in reverse from steps 9 – 14 and the pattern triggers again from step 17 – 30.
