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.

“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.”

Since 1990, Florian Sitzmann is a successful producer, songwriter and arranger for both newcomers and established artists such as Nena, Sasha, Xavier Naidoo, Edo Zanki, André Heller, Die Söhne Mannheims, Allison Paige, Cae Gauntt, Andru Donalds, Nino de Angelo, Joris, Audiodamn, Mine, Johannes Falk, Wallis Bird, Christina Stürmer, Sarah Brightman and many more. In addition to gold and platin records, the musician was awarded with the “ECHO” and the “Radio Regenbogen Award”, both highly coveted German music awards.

He teaches at Popakademie Mannheim and explores the wide and fascinating field of popular music production with his students.

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
