I discovered HOFA-Plugins when I switched over to Protools 11HDX. Many plugins I had used for ever had yet to port over to aax format. So the lack of familiar tools opened me up to find new ones.
I was intrigued when I found HOFA’s plugins and downloaded demos and wow I was very excited how they had designed these. I found them to be very intuitive and sonically up to my standards. The IQ-EQ with compression became an immediate favorite. The IQ-COMP really helps glue things together.
I just finished working on the “The Art of McCartney” record and HOFA tools really served me well on this project. I used the IQ-Reverb for certain sounds and I found the IQ-Analyser a great way to assess a track that was giving me some trouble.
I just started using the new IQ-Limiter and I have yet to find anything else that is so easy and sonically satisfying.

“Whenever you’re in need of a dynamic EQ and not a multiband compressor, the IQ-EQ fills the gap that existed for so long. The fact that it’s doing this in such an ingenious and comprehensive way, that really everything was thought of and, on top of it all, that the sound is so convincing, it always puts a smile on my face! This digital EQ is a pleasure to use!“
Florian Sitzmann, Sherwood Forest Recorders
