HOFA SYSTEM tested

Students at all levels will find SYSTEM to be intuitive in use, and motivating in terms of sound. HOFA SYSTEM could be the only suite of Plug-in modules you need. Inspiring – everything in one box. Highly recommended.

The website “Music Education Resources” checked out HOFA SYSTEM thoroughly. Editor John Verity, former guitarist of the English band Argent is impressed!
