OpenLIVE Launches Australia’s First Hi-Resolution Music Download Store

OpenLIVE has officially launched Australia’s first Hi-Res Music download store offering a vast collection of music at minimum CD quality. The store will launch with over 1.5m tracks and will be updated regularly over the coming months, reaching over 2.5m Hi-Res Audio tracks and giving consumers the opportunity to listen to their favourite Artists in Hi-Resolution.

OpenLIVE’s Hi-Res catalogue delivers all of the original information of the Master recording, meaning fans will hear the music as the Artist originally intended.

“We’re very excited by the launch of our download store.” says Dale Moore, Chief Executive Officer. “Hi-Res digital music files are not readily available in Australia and we believe it’s important for people to have the option of choosing Hi-Res over MP3.”

The extensive catalogue of music includes a large range of Artists from different genres. OpenLIVE has plans to continue to grow this library to provide Music Fans with one of the most extensive catalogues of Hi-Res music available.

“Hi-Res music has benefits across all genres” says Simon Tait, Chief Technology Officer. “The depth, feeling and sense of realism can be heard, and felt regardless of the type of music. It’s not just for classical & jazz aficionados, it’s genre agnostic and this is borne out by the sheer number of Artists who make their catalogues available in Hi – Res formats.”

OpenLIVE has also developed some exciting new technology in the live music space that will result in a growing collection of live recordings being made available to fans.

“Very soon, any band or Artist playing in OpenLIVE enabled venues will have the ability to capture, archive and release their live performances with just a few clicks” says Tait. “Watch this space…something very cool is coming over the horizon.”

Launching in Australia on 27 August 2015, OpenLIVE is Australia’s first Hi-Resolution Audio download store and plans to help invigorate the live music scene through the creation of a growing pool of live music.
