Cool new delay

Is it us or have pedals become increasing complicated? If it takes three days to sort your sound before you step on it is it worth it? With the Future Factory FF-1Y Delay from Free the Tone it seems that it is.

Here’s what they say about it:
“Creation of a new sound” ― this was the motto for the development of FREE THE TONE “FUTURE FACTORY” FF-1Y. Many digital delay units that implement a modulation function have been introduced to date. In general, the phase of a low frequency oscillator (LFO) used in these modulation circuits changes regularly at a preset cycle. However in our “FUTURE FACTORY,” we succeeded in creating a new modulation sound with a unique method in which signal’s phase changes at random when the signal crosses a certain attenuation level. This creates an unprecedented effect in which a fluctuating spacious sound seems to float in the air. (This function works best when used in Stereo mode.) The FF-1Y has a dedicated 3-band equalizer for delay sound. Tonal adjustments of delay sound are indispensable for handling various musical phrases. The “FUTURE FACTORY” incorporates two delay modules that can be used as a stereo delay or easily used in Monaural mode by connecting them in series.

Complicated indeed.
