Freqport and HAYAKUMO Bring Innovative Audio Solutions to Japan

Freqport has entered into a distribution agreement with Japan's HAYAKUMO Ltd. The alignment of core values between Freqport and HAYAKUMO - a focus on user needs, creating inherently good products, and the desire to contribute to music creation - has been a crucial element of this collaboration.

We're delighted to announce a significant milestone in our journey: Freqport, creators of the innovative Freqport FT1 FreqTube Multi-Instance Analog Hardware, has signed a distribution agreement with HAYAKUMO, a renowned developer and distributor of musical instruments and audio equipment in Japan. This partnership will make our pioneering product available to a broad range of retailers across Japan, marking a key expansion of our global footprint.

HAYAKUMO Ltd. is celebrated for its dedication to creating "tangible things" such as musical instruments and audio equipment, with a belief that their value is truly realised when used to produce "intangible things" like music. This aligns perfectly with Freqport's own ethos of blending the warmth of analog sound with the convenience of digital technology to enhance musical creation.

"A company needs to make a profit to continue, but making money is not the reason we are in this business." This sentiment, expressed by HAYAKUMO, resonates with us at Freqport. Our shared core values have been instrumental in forging this partnership. Both companies are committed to developing products that are inherently good and thinking from the user's perspective to understand their essential needs.

The Freqport FT1 FreqTube is the embodiment of these values. This revolutionary hardware unit allows users to run plug-ins through real analog components, offering seamless integration into any preferred Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). It's a product born from our unique point of view and ideas, designed to bring the benefits of authentic analog processing without the limitations of traditional analog equipment.

With this new partnership, Freqport continues to strengthen its global presence and commitment to bringing innovative audio solutions to customers around the world. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with HAYAKUMO Ltd., and we look forward to seeing the Freqport FT1 FreqTube make its mark in Japan.
