“Napster serves many brands across various industries and we’re always looking for ways to super serve our customers with custom solutions,” said Bill Patrizio, president and chief executive officer, Rhapsody International, parent company of Napster. “Super Hi-Fi’s compelling audio stitching technology enables us to do that in a whole new way, and we’re excited to engage our mutual partners with our combined value propositions.”

The result is a service that allows digital music service providers and music-driven consumer brands to create highly compelling, personalized audio products with authentic and ownable voices that were previously unattainable.”
