The 4 digit library is essential to the digital age, says Simon O’Brien, digital library manager at Yamaha Digital Piano.
It is a universal format that enables anyone to create and share their digital music collection, and to share and discover music that is also accessible to all.
“You can download your favorite tracks and share them with anyone, whether you’re a music lover or just a music junkie,” O’Briens said.
“We are all in this together, we’re all part of this together.”
4 digit music sharing platforms like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Apple Music have taken the idea of a 4 digit shared library to a whole new level.
And many music fans are embracing it, as Spotify has more than 60 million users worldwide.
However, it is not all about sharing music on a digital platform.
4 digit platforms also allow artists to connect with fans and promote their work online.
O’Connor explained that the big difference between 4 digit and digital libraries is the way the music is curated.
4D music is not always the best choice for artists who want to promote their music.
For example, O’Connell said that a 4D digital library is not necessarily a better choice for musicians who want their music to appear in a digital format on their website.
“If the artist wants to promote it on a website, the format may not be the best fit for them,” he said.
O&P also uses 4 digit formats for its albums.
For albums released on O&P albums, a 4 D digital library will give the artists access to all the tracks and audio that were not available on the album.
“It is a great opportunity for the artists to promote the album and get more exposure,” O&s general manager Michael O’Malley said.
While many artists are embracing 4 digit libraries, O&ing also uses digital formats for albums as well.
Overnight, 4D format album sales increased by more than 40 percent in 2017.
The music industry is looking at 4D formats for future releases and O&lification is using them to create an even more personalized experience for fans.
Obert says that they are now exploring how to extend the 4D library concept into more genres and genres of music.
“In the future, we will be exploring more options and we are open to all genres, all styles of music, and all different kinds of formats,” Obert said.
For now, Obert hopes that 4D is the future.
