Chinese manufacturer NUX has unveiled its new MG-30 amp modeler and multi-effects unit.

Featuring two NXP RT processors, the MG-30 packs 25 electric guitar amp models, plus two acoustic amp models, and even three bass amp models. Eight guitar and bass cabs also come aboard, in addition to eight mics and three mic placement options.

On top of a smorgasbord of pre- and post-effects, the MG-30 also features a phrase looper and tuner. It can drive a whopping 1,024 samples with Impulse Response resolution with ultra-low system latency.

Elsewhere, the MG-30 boasts a 4-inch LCD screen, an external foot control, and a USB recording interface. Compatibility with NUX's QuickTone edit software allows users to download patches, load third-party IRs, or tweak parameters.
