A Top Shelf Modeler for Live Performance - The NUX Effects TRIDENT NME-5 Guitar Processor with Amps, IR Loader, FX and Phrase Looper - Black

Perfect for live applications, the TRIDENT offers plenty of I/O options. The Send / Return effect loop for external effects, 2 balanced XLR outputs to the PA system, Phones output for monitoring, Exp. Pedal input for adding an expression pedal, Master Volume pot, and MIDI In / Out.

The TRIDENT is constructed from one-piece die-cast aluminum chase, making it solid, strong and built for live performance. The TRIDENT features NUX’s iconic TSAC-4K Amp Modeling (White-box Physical Modeling algorithm). The TSAC-4K Amp Modeling algorithm is twice as complex than previous versions. This led NUX to design a new hardware platform with two DSPs—one to handle all the effects, and the other to handle the amp modeling algorithm. Additionally, the TRIDENT uses premium A/D and D/A converters and analog circuits to achieve a clear sound with low noise levels.

This world-class amp modeling algorithm comes fully loaded with features and functionality. Just like their real counterparts, the included 27 amps feature HIGH/LOW inputs, four inputs for patch cable jumping and toggle switch for voicing—for max tweaking.

The TRIDENT is a powerful IR loader and includes 27 Cab IRs at 1,024 sample resolution. Fine-tune your cab tone with four microphones (three positions each), to adjust IR low cut/high cut/level.

And finally, expand your IR library with third-party IRs and 32 additional slots. The TRIDENT edit software will convert the IR format automatically on your PC or Mac.

The knob layout, toggle switches and footswitches of the TRIDENT are akin to stompboxes—you can engage/disengage the effects freely. The SELECT & PARAM encoders with LCD display deliver more parameter details, block order/status.

The TRIDENT is also a powerful studio device, a perfect USB-C Audio Interface for guitar. You can download TRIDENT Editor to edit patches and set up the USB routing. Record your TRIDENT tracks to your favorite DAW or use it as a re-amp device to breathe new life into your previously recorded audio tracks.

The TRIDENT includes a 60-seconds phrase looper and you can adjust the looper position as PRE or POST. In PRE, the recorded loop is clean and ready to be processed by the TRIDENT Amps and Effects. In POST, the recorded loop is processed by the TRIDENT.
