The IQ-Series Analyser V2 has become an essential tool for spectrum and sound analysis in countless studios worldwide. The new standalone version can be used without a DAW. However, you can use the included NetAux plugin to connect the IQ-Series Analyser V2 with your DAW.

The standalone version is an essential tool for live mixing, not only for spectrum analysis but for loudness measurement, stereo correlation and peak level display of different frequency ranges. 
The IQ-Series Analyser displays the frequency spectrum as a peak, hold, RMS and energy curve. The energy curve represents the frequency spectrum over time.

Reference curves from various styles of music are included. You can create and save your own references as well.

The high resolution frequency analysis, simultaneous display of multiple signals in one window, continuous frequency zoom and the seamless interaction with the HOFA IQ-Series EQ make the HOFA IQ-Series Analyser V2 an indispensable aid for your ears.
