Download ATK for SuperCollider 3
An extension library for the SuperCollider programming language


Distributed via the atk-sc3 Quark & the sc3-plugins project.

atk-sc3 Quark

The ATK for SuperCollider3's classes, extension methods and documentation are distributed via the atk-sc3 Quark. Start by reviewing the Quark installation instructions found here. See also Using Quarks.

With git installed, you can easily install the atk-sc3 Quark directly by running the following line of code in SuperCollider:



The ATK's compiled UGen component releases are available from the sc3-plugins releases page.


Place the downloaded SC3plugins folder in your Extensions folder. On Mac OS X, this resolves to:

~/Library/Application Support/SuperCollider/Extensions

You may need to create the Extensions folder if it does not already exist.


On other platforms, you can find where this is by running the following line of code in SuperCollider:

// post the directory in which to move the SC3Plugins folder
// alternatively, SC can open it for you
// (assuming it already exists! - you may need to create /Extensions)

NOTE: The ATK requires SuperCollider3 version 3.9 or later. Download the latest version here, or fork the source code at GitHub.
