Crazily creative

Don’t you sometimes want to distort, gate or modulate a reverb and do anything else you can think of? This plugin gives you impressive options for creative work. This also includes the possibility to lengthen or shorten frequency components of the impulse responses directly in the 3D view.

6 at a time

Only the IQ-Series Reverb V2 lets you mix up to six reverb sounds. You have access to several special effects and even an excellent algorithmic reverb for your very personal blends.

Left, right, front, back

The Positioner is designed to help you arrange instruments freely in space. You simply move the orange X and the Positioner immediately takes care of the tonal representation. And best of all: it works with any impulse response!

Surround for everyone

You can also create your mixes and masterings in surround with the best mono, stereo and true stereo impulse responses and algorithmic textures.

The IQ-Series Reverb V2 Story

Is there such a thing as THE perfect reverb?

This is what we asked ourselves in the spring of 2019, when we thought intensively about the update of our reverb flagship. Some years had passed since the first release and it was time to respond comprehensively to user requests and make use of new impressive technologies.

We collected ideas and requests with a newsletter to over 100,000 audio enthusiasts, while the HOFA-College students contributed interesting ideas – and of course our studio crew also made exciting suggestions.

Challenge accepted!

This put the challenge to our programmers. They absorbed themselves with scientific meticulousness into reverberation with a focus on convolution reverb, before they made the vision come true with many thousand lines of program code.

At the same time, the audio engineers began to create impulse responses. With the kind support of our acousticians, rooms, halls, churches and even cars, forests and loudspeakers were convoluted.

And the old hardware units finally had some usage hours again. What we didn’t have in the studios was bought or borrowed.

There is probably no legendary reverb that hasn’t been represented in the control room C of the HOFA-Studios to leave a long-lasting impression.

»I was especially impressed by the mixed reverbs, which were taken directly from mixing sessions. These blends of different devices unfold a very special magic. You will find them labeled as ‘hybrids’.«

First Feedbacks:

“The Reverb V2 is possibly the most creative control of any reverb I’ve ever dealt with.
It’s got a ton of great sounds and functions, like the ability to use real or synthetic verbs.
The positioner, saturator, comp, etc. are super easy to access and dive into.

It’s pretty darn great!”

Joe Barresi – Audio engineer and producer (Slipknot, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool)

“I have been using the new V2 of the HOFA IQ-Series Reverb. I’ve tried it on everything.
The collection of included IRs is vast and I can always find something that falls perfectly into place!”

Eric Valentine – Producer (Smash Mouth, Queens of the Stone Age, Slash, Good Charlotte, etc.)

“The plates are lush, the churches sound great and the intuitive IR Cut keeps everything tight.
In both of my scores and pop songs I need this mix of huge spaces and total precision.
Everything sounds clean and organic and the first three reverbs I dialled in are now in my template.

I’m impressed!”

Lars Deutsch – Producer / Composer / Songwriter (Red Bull, Mercedes, CBS, FOX, etc.)

“My hardware units are having a hard time to compete against the IQ-Reverb V2, not only because of its sound, but also because of its capabilities. I think it’s a great tool to use in a quick production workflow, but also leaves a lot of room of experimentation.”

Wytse Gerichhausen – Audio Engineer / YouTuber (White Sea Studio)

“The first version of IQ-Reverb was a go-to for me in countless applications – from very short rooms to really long reverbs, from natural to crazy. Version 2 now is a real hit, with its 6 engines, the even better user interface, the creative tools in the plugin itself and the huge amount of first-class IRs. Depth, width, density – everything you need!“

Florian Sitzmann – Producer / Songwriter (Nena, Sasha, Xavier Naidoo, Wallis Bird, Christina Stürmer, Sarah Brightman)

“The IQ-Reverb V2 offers almost endless possibilities for sound processing.
What I liked right away is the super easy access of the parameters.
This way you can edit and adjust a reverb in a very short time.

What also excited me about the IQ Reverb V2 is the great variety of creating hundreds of different sounds and emotions from a single source with a single reverb unit. For example, I was able to get more than ten completely different emotions out of a simple Logic piano in 5 minutes – great! I also got top results for drums very quickly.

The IQ Reverb 2 will definitely go to the top of my toolbox – thumbs up!”

Oliver Pinelli – Producer / Vocal coach (Enrique Iglesias, Helene Fischer, Paul van Dyk, Unheilig, DJ Ötzi, Cassandra Steen, Yvonne Catterfeld, etc.)

“The combination and variety of algorithms creates an amazing and unique depth that you can’t get with any other reverb plugin.
I really enjoy using the IQ-Reverb V2!
Thank you, HOFA!”

Jon Sine – Producer / YouTuber

“Plugin manufacturers seem to get that ‘all-in-one’ plugins are where it’s at these days, and the IQ Reverb 2 from HOFA is the first reverb plugin I’ve come across that really has all the features you could dream of in one place. It goes without saying there is a great library of impulse responses, of both real and artificial spaces, with all the necessary parameter adjustment options you would expect from a high-end reverb plugin.

But there’s so much more. The inclusion of tweak-able saturation, modulation, gate and even compression settings is genius, and that’s only a fraction of the deeper customisation options available. On top of that, it’s so intuitive, responsive and user-friendly. And it helps that it’s beautiful to look at too! I can finally replace my multiple plugin reverb buss chains with a single plugin that does it all from one window. Nice one HOFA!”

Tom MacLean – UK-based guitarist / bassist / keyboardist / producer (Psion, To-Mera, ex-Haken a.o.)

“Extremely powerful when it comes to spatial depth and the scope of possibilities! Incredibly precise reproduction of rooms at the highest level, which makes positioning objects in the room seem almost effortless. For me, it is the perfect tool for productions that are designed to create especially realistic scenes or to transport you into surreal sound worlds, no matter if speech or music – fantastic!
It is hard to imagine an application that HOFA could not fulfill with this reverb in the highest quality.”

Jan Stahlmann –  Broadcast mixing & mastering engineer

“In version 2, HOFA has expanded the strengths of the IQ-Series Reverb consistently. The plug-in scores as a remarkably flexible and extremely universal reverb effect. […]

With the IQ-Series Reverb V2, HOFA has succeeded in combining the natural spatial impression of convolution reverbs and the comprehensive possibilities of algorithmic reverb effects in just one plug-in. […]”

Rating: 6 out of 6 points / Must-Have
