150+ HOFA presets are loadable, but can only be edited to a limited extent.

There are two different kinds of presets. Presets for modules can be loaded in HOFA SYSTEM basic as long as the restricted parameters aren’t changed. For example an AlgoVerb preset can be loaded as long as it uses the Plate algorithm.

Besides module presets a major feature of HOFA SYSTEM is to save whole processing chains. These chains can be loaded and changed in HOFA SYSTEM basic as long as all used modules parameters are available in the freeware. If a chain preset contains modules that would need a license it can only be loaded if it is a factory (HOFA) preset. In this case it isn’t possible to change any routing or parameters.
