Plugin Activity2017–now

QUARK is a free Digital Audio Workstation plugin that provides a workflow for mixing/mastering quadraphonic content in the QS Regular Matrix format. It provides an encoder capable of 4-2 channel encoding and a decoder (mostly used to A/B test mixes) capable of reproducing original discrete channels from an encoded signal.

Encoded mixes can be distributed via any normal stereo distribution method (vinyl, radio, streaming services) for playback.

KamranV and I are building QUARK with the help of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts through dublab.
