Ok, this is not related to quad matrix decoding, but it's an emulator of the fantastic Sansui's QS Synthesizer Surround, which is capable to "quadriphise" a stereo source.
During experimentations with my Qs script in AA1.5 I was trying to amplify the separation between tracks, but I wasn't happy.
So, just before running the qs script, I did a "pan/expand" effects to front.wav and rear.wav and saved them.
The result on decoding was awful!!!!(n)

But I tried it with a stereo source and guess what??
It was amazing!!! it separated channels so perfectly I was a bit confused...
I tested with my old copy of JT "thick as a brick", and it was amazing.
So if you want to try, you must "pan/expand" your front.wav and rear.wav with a value of 150%.
Save your files and then run my script that you'll find here.
p.s. it's a better version of the one attached to this thread

Have fun!!!

p.p.s. I edited this post with a better QS script.
I tried myself this one with various QS samples and the results are amazing.

So... are the front and rear wavs the exact same after they expanded but before they are run through the script?...

in other words:

open a wave in Audition
expand/pan to 150%
copy the original wav and rename it rear.wav
run the script.
