Many artists have gone to war with digital music formats in recent years, but none have done what Canadian Neil Young intends. According to Ubergizmo, the musician registered names for a future digital audio format that he is helping to create.
Among the names registered by Young are 21st Century Record Player, Earth Storage, Thanks for Listening and SQS (Studio Quality Sound). In the description of the names appears “Online sales services and physical music and artistic performances, high quality music that can be downloaded over the internet, high quality discs with music and video, and pre-recorded digital media with audio and video for storage. and reproduction. “
Young has a project to develop a format that can recreate the same studio quality, which is what artists and producers listen to during recording. According to the star, no digital music format currently has this capability – which is why he hates MP3 music.
And do you think Neil Young will one day be able to replace the various digital formats we have on the market today (such as MP3, AAC, FLAC and WAV, for example)?
