IQ-Analyser | Angus Davidson

"This suite of plugins from HOFA have become my go-to tools for live sound.
On a recent tour which included this show at the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Symphony, I used the IQ-Analyser V2 for all of my measurement, both for the live sound and in Pro Tools for the record.
It is flexible, fast and incredibly powerful. A standout plugin in a very crowded marketplace."
