You’ve been waiting for this. I know! Well, here now is the final production prototype. The Nu v2 Multi is based on the Nu v2 capsules recently announced.
Apart from the totally redesigned Nu v2 capsules, there are a couple of improvements…
The Nu version-2 capsule is ready to go!
Technically, this is v3 now, if you count the Neo as v1. I almost forgot the Neo and the Six-pack project, where it all started.
You’ve been asking for this for a long time now. A gift to the Roland aficionado. Finally, a Roland 13 Pin Adaptor for the Nu Series Modular Active Pickups.
Some of you asked if it is possible to have the Nu and XR in a common baseplate. It turns out that it is indeed possible. The way to do it is have the Nu Multi, which has a somewhat lower profile, piggyback on the XR’s baseplate. This way, the Nu will still have its own height adjustment independent of the XR. You’d want the Nu capsules as close to the strings as possible (within 1mm to 2mm) to minimize crosstalk. Here’s the idea:

After more than a year of continuous refinement, I’m proud to finally release the Nexus. This small, hacker friendly breakout box connects your multichannel guitar to the outside world using a specialized (LEMO compatible) multi-pin connector for up to 12 channels of audio and 7 channels of analog control voltages for by-wire (remote) control of volume, tone, patch or effects. Audio may come from standard mono-pickups or from the Nu multichannel pickup. Analog control voltages are converted to MIDI control messages.
The Nexus and related support electronics are currently only available on pre-order basis, with a 3 week lead time for the first batch. Please send us a message for inquiries and orders.
An often asked question about the Nu modular pickups is about mixing to mono, or even stereo. The typical assumption is that, just like any other active pickup, you simply tie the outputs together to have a summed output. But not so fast! With 2 or 3 pickups (typical guitar setup), you might be able to get away with passive mixing. But mixing anything more than three channels is not a simple task and cannot be overlooked.
It’s restocking time at Cycfi, and that means the Nu’s are back! Continue reading
