IQ-Comp V1.1.0 (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
- optimized for maximum compression with minimal artifacts (in your face & classic 80's British console buss compressor sound)
- mono, stereo, dual mono, MS (Lat Vert) operation modes, sidechaining and parallel-compression
- innovative link-up of gain reduction with the two onboard EQs
- allows precise equalisation according to the compressor's gain reduction
- arbitrary shelving and peak filters can be used on the new high quality EQ
- EQ look ahead function for maximum transient punch
- innovative level & frequency reduction display for ideal optical control
- changeable plugin window size
- "set as default" preset
- supports all common sample frequencies
- PC and Mac, 32- and 64-bit DAWs
The HOFA IQ-Comp provides for:
- a very dense vocal- and drum sound without technical artifacts
- simple realisation of "warm", "colourful" or simply novel and experimental compression sounds
- stable drum sounds even when played very dynamically
- "triggered EQ" when mixing real drums:
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
- many innovative and accurate intervention options during mastering by use of CompLinkEqs in conjunction with MS processing, parallel compression, look ahead ...
- We use a specially designed multi-level copy protection.

Press comments & tests:
With the IQ-Comp HOFA achieved a great success again.
At an attractive price, you get a very powerful compressor whose strengths come to play at a variety of applications.
Even drastic processing still sounds "musical". Its remarkable flexibility makes this intuitive mixing and mastering tool an interesting alternative to multiband compressors.
Evaluation: 6 of 6 points / Editor´s recommendation
Using the IQ-Comp is really easy. It is an unobtrusively working compressor that - with its possibility of simulaneously tweaking the sound - has the making of a secret weapon.
.. should be standard in many studios.
value for money: „very good - outstanding“ | overall mark: „top of the range - very good“
Though extremely easy to use, the IQ-Comp is able to handle the most complex audio material, even when other plugins already had to throw in the towel.
Professional Audio Editors Choice 2012
Thanks to the adaptability of attack, release and ratio, the signal´s dynamics can be reduced without having any pumping effects or affecting the sound at all.
...good results, easy to use, versatile and flexible.
