The SILKY GROOVE is a new compressor in FREE THE TONE’s standard product line. It is based on the SILKY COMP which was highly appreciated in our Custom Series. While inheriting SILKY COMP’s sound and enhancing functions and ease of use, the SILKY GROOVE newly incorporates a dry mix circuit requested by many guitarists and bassists.

Considering the phase between the effect and dry signals, we carefully designed this circuit to avoid the phenomenon in which these two sounds can be heard separately when mixed together. With the new circuit you can get a well blended sound which cannot be obtained from conventional mix circuits. This dry mix circuit can provide you with a broad range of sound from a heavily compressed effect sound without any dry signal to a fast and strong signal comprised of only the dry sound.

Generally a compressor is an effect unit that can be difficult to adjust. Operation of the SILKY GROOVE’s compression circuit has been optimized to make compressor adjustment easier. The ATTACK knob sets the strength of the incoming sound and the SUSTAIN knob varies the depth of compression to control sustain. Since each control parameter changes smoothly, your favorite setting can be found easily.
The SILKY GROOVE can create silky-smooth and natural compression without impairing important elements during performance such as true sound characteristics of your guitar/bass, subtle plucking and picking nuance.

The SILKY GROOVE brings more expressiveness to your performances. For example, if you are a guitarist who prefers precise and accurate arpeggios, sharp rhythm tone, and unconstrained solo tones; or if you are a bassist who wants a clearly articulated bottom end or springy slaps, etc., the SILKY GROOVE can give you the support you need.

FEATURES

  • The ATTACK and SUSTAIN controls of the compressor have an easy-to-adjust gentle curve to prevent rapid changes.
  • The newly designed dry mix circuit provides a wider range of sound making.
  • FREE THE TONE’s original HTS (Holistic Tonal Solution) circuit is implemented.
    Unlike conventional buffer circuits, the HTS circuit attains both “high sound quality” and “low noise” by performing impedance conversion while fully bringing out sound characteristics of the guitar/bass. The HTS circuit prevents degradation of guitar/bass timbre even when the effect is turned off.
  • There is no need to worry about phase reversal: the output signal is in the same phase as the input signal.
