NUX NDL-3 Hook Drum and Loop Pedal

Perfect for songwriting sessions and bedroom tinkering, the NDL-3 Hook allows you to loop passages while the pedal intuitively lays down a sick drum beat.

The HOOK Drum & Loop (NDL-3) is a mini looper pedal with auto tempo detection. Simply record a phrase loop, then add a synchronized drum beat. Or you can use the included Smart Tap Tempo and play the drum beat, then start to record the phrase loop. The HOOK is intelligent and simple to operate.

When recording your phrase loop, you can choose Normal Recording or Auto Recording. Normal Recording (NR) is like regular looper pedal, while you press the footswitch, it starts to record immediately.

When in Auto Recording (AR) mode, press the footswitch to record arm the looper. HOOK will start recording once it detects your guitar signal. This is convenient while you put the HOOK on the desk, and you can use your hand instead of your foot to operate it.

Even without the phrase loop, the HOOK can be used as a drum beat with smart tap tempo. It offers 11 drum beat styles with high quality sound samples, and useful rhythms for practice.

The HOOK features 24-bit/44.1kHz recording resolution and six minutes recording time with unlimited overdubs. It is true-bypass and analog dry-through. The drum beats and loop playback are independent, which means that you can stop the loop and keep the drum beat playing. Re-play the phrase loop as you want.

The HOOK also includes a PHONES out jack! Lots of musicians love to use pedals and they sometimes need silent practice! Finally you can export your phrase loop WAV file through HOOK APP, please download it from the HOOK product page.

The USB-C read more port is for firmware updates. Connect USB cable to a PC and hold the footswitch to boot-up the device and to enter the DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode. Once connected, you can do firmware updates using DFU updater software.
You can download the related firmware, DFU updater and firmware update guide from product page.

The HOOK APP is very intuitive for easy operation.
