SuperCollider is free software (published under the GPLv3 free software license).

Plugins and extensions

Plugins are for the audio synthesis server; classes are to extend the language.


SuperCollider plugins provide additional synthesis (and other) capabilities to the server - i.e. new types of sound source, filter, etc.


SuperCollider extensions are classes or class libraries that provide additional functionality for use in the object-oriented language.

Quarks is the name for the SuperCollider “package-management” system, i.e. a system for automatically installing/updating SuperCollider class extensions written by users. Check out the current list of Quarks to see what’s available.
