Actually The Best Analyzer


There are a lot of analysers. There are some you can trust.

But there is only one that shows you all you need to know.

Innovative reference and energy curves* in combination with classical frequncy analysis make the HOFA IQ-Analyser an indispensable tool for anyone who wants a capable partner for his ears.

*The Energy-Curve shows you the frequency range considering the time factor. Therefore the appearance of the curve is not determined by the loudest spot, but by the average – from the beginning to the end of the measurement.

The IQ-Analyser finally unveils the frequency points which are ideal for the editing with an EQ.

I bought  the IQ-Analyser two days ago and am impressed! The analyser is a real enrichment!

I´d like to say you scored a big hit again! The IQ-Analyser is just the tool that I’ve always wanted.
At the very first test he has unmasked one hihat, which did its mischief in the lower midrange ;-)
This will certainly be – together with the IQ-Eq –  my absolute standard tool.

I’ve been looking for a precisely and reliably working analyser and found it with the IQ-Analyser. I wouldn´t want to work without, it’s in use everyday – annoying frequencies are quickly discovered and my productions sound better now.
