HOFA Plugins has announced the HOFA SYSTEM 1, a modular effect plugin that allows flexible routing of various FX modules.

HOFA System

Besides AlgoVerb – an algorithmic reverb with frequency dependent decay time shaping – HOFA SYSTEM contains modules for dynamics (compressor, gate, expander), an 11-band parametric EQ, micro pitch shifting, distortion, delay, gain, pan and has various routing possibilities (M/S, dual mono, feedback, parallel, multiband).
