Music : Music 2.0
Music 2.0Although they offer many improvements, new digital music formats often face an uphill battle replacing tried and true legacy formats such as MP3.

This month the Motion Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) will meet in Germany to deliberate whether to make MT9, a new digital audio format commercially known as Music 2.0, an international standard.

MT9 was developed by South Korea-based Audizen, and works by splitting an audio file into six separate channels, such as vocals, bass, guitar and others. Music players can then raise or lower the volume on specific channels similar to the way a producer uses a mixing board. MT9’s inventors say the new format will replace MP3 as the standard for all digital music, according to reports in the Korea Times.
