User feedbacks

IQ-EQ is SO transparent and most importantly, extremely flexible. 
You guys nailed the sound and the interface as far as its intuitiveness and useability! 
Well done again...

I was almost dumbstruck ... Ingenious !!! A big plus, of course, is the variable window size. 
The integrated analyser is marvelous! It is very useful even for inexperienced users, because you can see exactly where you need to use it. Especially for De-Essing and sibilance control this is very helpful. 
Extremely interesting to me is the editing ability of the middle and side signal - wow! 
Conclusion ... a high-end plug-in for an unbeatable price

The HOFA IQ-EQ really deserves the name "IQ". Its handling is absolutely intuive; by sweeping in the display you can quickly find the desired frequencies and the appropriate parameters and control them.
I got along with it as fast as with no other EQ. 
The sound of the HOFA IQ-EQ is sophisticated, clear and pure.

Press comments & tests:

Because of its excellent sound quality, its clear interface and its low resource requirements the IQ-Eq was satisfying in our test across-the-board.
In particular the Dynamic Gain function makes this flexible equalizer an effective troubleshooter, which even enables drastic corrections, which are only implemented when necessary.
Rating 6 out of 6 points / Editor's Choice


The HOFA IQ-Eq is one of the plugins that you do not want to lose if you had it in use once before.
The concept is ingenious ...
The dynamic function saved us a lot of work and allows completely new possibilities.
The equalizer is designed for the use on individual tracks as well as mastering.
