MQA delivers high-resolution recordings, fully authenticated by the artist, that are also backwards compatible to play on any device. But most importantly, MQA allows you to truly deliver on the artist’s vision in the studio.
MQA opens up the market for hi-res recordings – both for new recordings and re-issues from the archive.
MQA authentically reproduces the sound of the studio master – a technological first – without you putting your “crown jewels” online.
MQA will play on any device and is fully compatible with the existing file/streaming ecosystem.
MQA has been demonstrated to many artists and producers, and the feedback has been universally positive. Stay tuned for further announcements and endorsements.
MQA will be available in a select number of studios over the coming months.
MQA works best when the system is aware of the entire recording chain. Thus a well-documented catalogue release can benefit just as much as a new release from the studio.
MQA is currently employed as part of the mastering process, but we are providing MQA principles and tools to manufacturers of A/D and D/A converters for use in the studio/recording process.
MQA has been presented to all the major labels, and many independent content providers as well. All have been invited to invest as part of the MQA entity.
MQA does not add any extra burden to the album delivery timeline. It is inherent and embedded in the mastering (and soon the recording) process itself.
"MQA will be the first opportunity, in the history of recorded music, to directly link the music listener to the mastering studio; revolutionizing my job and its importance."
Eric Boulanger - Mastering Engineer, The Bakery
"I have spent many hours with Bob, listening to original recordings and being constantly amazed by the incredible sense of space and clarity brought by MQA."
Morten Lindberg - Producer & Grammy multi-nominee
"MQA is incredible and I'm really happy that people will be able to experience the album at studio quality."
Amy Duncan - Singer, Songwriter
