Quadraphonic Universally Accessible Resource Kit (QUARK) beta plug-in sign up.
We are working with a team of artists and engineers to develop the Quadraphonic Universally Accessible Resource Kit (QUARK) as freely available software tool to meet the expanding need for musicians and engineers to develop new spatial audio work in existing and emerging technology without a large financial investment. The QUARK software plugin is used in Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) and similar platforms to encode four channels of discrete audio into two channels (standard stereo) audio then back four channels again, allowing the distribution of four-channel spatial recordings via widely accessible two-channel formats such as vinyl, radio, streaming video such as YouTube and music services such as iTunes and Spotify.
QUARK enables musicians, filmmakers and engineers to make spatial sound work via two channel distribution formats in the Regular Matrix format then monitor audio at the pre-encode, encode and decode phases so that these creatives may mix and master spatial sound work for distribution.
The beta is AVAILABLE NOW. Please submit your email below to get the link.
After you download, please go to
to send us notes so that we can improve QUARK.
