Korean software engineers are introducing a new digital music format dubbed MT9 and want it to replace the MP3 as the de facto format for the future. With the ability to separate music into six channels (voice, chorus, piano, guitar, bass, and drum), a listener can hear how bad some singers really are without the band to cover up their warbling.
Unlike other digital formats exclusively used by big companies such as SK Telecom, Audizen allows users to copy the MT9 files, making it a more attractive format. "It's like having a CD or cassette tape. Once you buy it, you can lend it to your friends. We don't want to be too fussy about DRM (digital right management)," he said.
