    • On September 9th, 2009, Harmonix Music Systems and MTV Games released The Beatles: RockBand music video game, including 45 digitally remixed Beatles songs (additional tracks have since become available as downloads). On the same day, after a painstaking four-year-long digital remastering process, the core Beatles catalogue was reissued, including the Past Masters compilation of rare and non-album tracks. Three months later, the catalogue was released digitally for the first time on an official, limited edition run of 30,000 USB flash drives - in both FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec), an open and royalty-free digital format, and the more widely used MP3 format (a patented audio encoding process of lesser quality). The Beatles had finally entered the digital age - with a bang!
