ixiQuarks is an experimental music software released by the ixi software team, focusing on both live and studio production contexts.

ixiQuarks is a software environment designed for live musical improvisation that allows for user interaction on hardware, GUI and code level.[1] The environment enables innumerable setups with flexible loading of tools and instruments. The ixiQuarks consist of different types of tools: basic utilities, instruments, effects, filters, spectral effects and generators.

In 2008, ixiQuarks won the first prize in the Lomus international music software contest[2] organized by the Association Française d’Informatique Musicale.[3]

This software is written in SuperCollider and is part of an extended research programme exploring human-computer interaction in computer music.
