Overview

These plugins are contained in the HOFA SYSTEM MixBox:

CompChan

CompChan

The CompChan sounds like the characteristic channel compressor of the most successful analog mixing boards. You will love the punch on drums and the way it makes bass and other instruments sound vibrant and controlled.

CompSum

CompSum

CompSum is perfect for bus compression. The adaptive controls also work great for vocals and solo instruments.

CompListenMic

The CompListenMic is an emulation of the talkback compressor of a famous british mixing console.
In the 1980s, this compressor was often used to enhance the room sound of drum recordings.

EQ-Parametric

EQ

The EQ-Parametric features 11 filter bands, ranging from 13 to 20,000 Hz and a high-precision analyser.

For each band you can choose from:
  • High and lowcut (6, 12, 24, 48 dB/oct)
  • Bandpass filter with adjustable Q factor
  • Bell filter (Q 0.1 – 36)
  • High and low shelves
  • Vintage high and low shelves
  • GainMode

Do you need another filter band?
Simply click the plus button – the EQ plugin window is exactly as big as you need it.

Clicking on the frequency curve opens the large curve editor with analyser for all those who favour a precise optical feedback.

 

In combination with up to 32x oversampling (which is available for all SYSTEM plugins), you get an ultra-flexible, clear and highly musical EQ suitable for all applications.

Delay

Delay is a simple plugin that features delay times of up to 4095 ms. It can be synced to the host tempo with selectable note values – even triplet and dotted notes. Use Delay in the #Feedback plugin for very complex delay sounds.

Distortion

My personal favourite so far is the EQ which sounds incredibly effective. The compressors have a very nice attack and you can use feedback and cross-over filter to roughen a sound.
AlgoVerb sounds wonderfully dense and blends perfectly with the signal.

Earlier today, I purchased HOFA SYSTEM and wish to congratulate you on producing such an incredibly well designed product. I’m literally gobsmacked as to how well this suite of plugins performs on my computer both sonically and cpu-wise. I know HOFA SYSTEM will from now on get used on every mix & mastering session I’m involved in. [...]. Keep up the excellent work!
