- Analog dry signal for low noise and zero latency maintains the integrity of your source tone.
- Adjustable gain structure works with instrument or line-level inputs.
- High contrast, wide viewing angle display is easy to read from a distance.
- Small footprint with top jacks, ILLUMINE is easy to incorporate into your pedalboard.

- Manufactured locally in Orange County, California. Family owned and operated, Neunaber Audio is dedicated to bringing you the highest quality audio effects on the market.
The ILLUMINE is packed with 20 versatile reverb effects:
- Wet Plugin – As close to the Neunaber Wet Reverberator software plugin we can get in pedal form. An open sound that works well with many instruments.
- Wet v3 – The popular W3T effect in the Immerse Mk II.
- Wet v2 – The Wet effect in Expanse and the Immerse Mk I.
- Wet v1 – The original reverb from the Wet Stereo Reverb pedal. Like all of the Wet Reverb algorithms, it is known for its open, natural sound, which complements the source signal without masking it.
- Room – Emulating a smaller acoustic space with a wide stereo sound field.
- Hall – Emulating the sound of a well-designed concert hall, this reverb is large and expansive.
- Plate – Bright and diffuse like a studio plate reverb.
- Vintage Digital – Designed in the style of a vintage rack unit, this reverb sounds diffuse and synthetic, but not metallic like a plate.
- Spring – A spring reverb consists of springs suspended between transducers, and its sound has a distinctive “twerp.”
- Gated Plate – This is our Plate reverb with infinite depth and gated by the input level.
- Reverse – Emulating the process of reversing the dry signal, adding reverb, then re-reversing the effected signal.
- Shimmer – Reminiscent of a synth pad that follows what your instrument plays, this is version 2 of our shimmer reverb algorithm.
- Rumble – Rumble creates a low-frequency drone for a deep, cavernous reverb sound. It sounds neat on synths.
- Octaves – This effect combines the Wet v3 Reverb with a dual octave generator, one up and one down.
- Wet+Echo – Combines the Wet v3 Reverb with stereo echo.
- Wet+Detune – This effect adds the Wet v3 Reverb and a detune effect.
- Bloom – This reverb is based on our Vintage Digital algorithm. It builds more slowly than a typical reverb.
- Swell – This reverb places a slow-attack, fast-release gate before a Wet v3 Reverb. This emulates placing a volume pedal before a reverb to swell in reverb pads.
- Infinite Hold – Combines the Wet v3 Reverb with a hold (“freeze”) function.
- Sustain – Built on the Wet v3 Reverb, Sustain is a magical effect that can be configured as a sustain effect or virtually infinite reverb.
