Technology Partners

There are many fine choices for audio, video, lighting, special effects, and show control systems. Over the years, we've come to expect a high level of quality and reliability from certain vendors, but we're ultimately manufacturer-agnostic. We're not loyal to one particular brand; we're loyal to the right choice for your project.

DSP Plugin Store

We create DSP plugins to leverage the power of the QSC Q-SYS platform in exciting new ways. Our plugin development focus is to address problems that don't currently have an existing solution. Our plugins offer extended functionality for your system and can decrease your overall system programming time.

Don't forget to check out the QSC Asset Manager to download our plugins from within Q-SYS Designer. You can also download the demo and purchase license files from our store by clicking on the link below.
