HOFA IQ-Comp V1.0.9 (changelog)
Everyone who is longing for a new way* and simply the best compression for vocals, drums, bass and mastering won't be able to avoid this plugin.
We equipped a compressor with intelligence to achieve perfect results for all sorts of audio material. No matter if vocals, drums or other instruments: The HOFA IQ-Comp permanently adjusts all the relevant settings to fit the musical needs. Therefore it delivers the sonically best compression, depending on your settings.
*Beyond all that, this is the world's only compressor that is able to link the gain reduction with the integrated equalizer if needed.
This feature allows you to boost e.g. the bass frequencies of the singer at the loudest parts and allows you to use completely new EQ variants depending on the compressors gain reduction e.g. while compressing drums.
Intelligent compression & totally new options:
HOFA IQ-Comp: The Make-It-Better-Compressor makes your music sound better.
- compressor with supremely intelligent/adaptive attack-, release- und ratio-settings
- simple handling, concise representation

e.g. while processing the snare track the hihat remains gentle even if a lot of high frequencies are added
- subtle to heavy dynamic processing, if necessary linked with precise to radical EQing
