Audio Interchange File Format

File extension .aiff
File category audio
Description

AIFF is intended for viewing and processing of audio data, as well as for its storage in digital devices. Apple designers developed it on the base of IFF in late 1980s. Thanks to lossless coding, it is very similar to WAV. In Windows OS, it is mostly used with .aiff extension.

AIFF files have gained significant attention from Mac PC users. They are popular as well among professional musicians who are most particular about sound quality. The fact that the format is widely supported by various multimedia software, and universal players, may also be considered a notable benefit. To open AIFF files in Windows OS, installing Apple iTunes, Windows Media Player, Roxio Creator, and some other programs are required.

Technical details

When being coded, the stream is divided into sound segments. A minute of standard stereo sound corresponds with 10 Mb of memory approximately. Standard non-compressed files use .aif or .aiff. In such files, audio data are represented in the form of pulse code modulation. If some data are lost through codecs, .aifc is used.

A standard 16 bit AIFF file has two channels for stereo sound and a 44 100 Hz sampling frequency. Being non-compressed, it differs in size significantly from MP3 and other similar formats. Sometimes it may contain samples and cycle information.

Free Lossless Audio Codec

File extension .flac
File category audio
Description

A free codec developed for lossless compression of audio content that does not exclude information from the stream. It allows for listening to musical compositions with professional sound reproduction systems and track archiving. FLAC files are being played by portative audio players supplied by most specialized programs and are represented in a wide variety of hardware implementations. They allow users to copy CD tracks without deterioration in sound quality.

Technical details

Since streaming is being coded with increased speed, FLAC files are often less than half of the original track. However, this does not affect the track quality, and therefore the format is popular for online translations and real-time coding. FLAC can support samples with a fixed point within the range of 4-32 bit per sample and a sampling frequency of 655.3 kHz. If new fields arrive, decoders are not being affected.

To change FLAC format, one may use Sound Forge or Adobe Audition. In addition to that, some smartphones can efficiently work with such files.
