IOVINE WANTS DIGITAL MUSIC

Iovine has revealed that he wants the digital music to be improving the quality.

Which is why Jimmy Iovine’s battle to improve the quality of digital music is actually worth noting. The Interscope-Geffen-A&M Records chairman has taken up the gauntlet to force the music industry to start offering consumers higher-quality downloads. What exactly constitutes higher quality in the digital world?

“Professional music producers generally capture studio recordings in a 24-bit, high-fidelity audio format,” writes CNN’s Mark Milian. “Before the originals, or ‘masters’ in industry parlance, are pressed onto CDs or distributed to digital sellers like Apple’s iTunes, they’re downgraded to 16-bit files.”
