Combining FREE THE TONE’s analog and digital technologies and achieving high-speed calculation by using a 32-bit high precision DSP, we have realized a sound quality that far exceeds that of usual pedal type delays.

By concentrating a vast amount of accumulated knowledge of analog and digital technologies into its new product “FLIGHT TIME,” Free The Tone has realized a sound quality that goes far beyond other pedal type delay units. With high-speed calculation performed by a 32-bit high-precision DSP, the FLIGHT TIME pursues sonic quality equal to that of famous classic rack type high quality delay units, without using simulation or modeling. Further, the FLIGHT TIME implements two ground-breaking features: Realtime BPM Analyzer and Delay Time Offset.

The Realtime BPM Analyzer adjusts the delay time by automatically trimming the BPM based on realtime tempo analysis of the current performance within the range of ±20% of the tempo (BPM) information tap-entered by using a footswitch. Delay Time Offset can shift the delay time slightly against the set BPM by entering the desired numerical value.

With a shorter delay time setting, you can give a high-speed impression to your playing. Reversely, a longer setting can help to render broader expressions with plenty of time for each tone. “FLIGHT TIME”, a delay effects unit that pursues better sound quality and higher usability and enables more musical expression.
