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.

WAVE Audio File

File extension .wav
File category audio
Description

WAV is one of the most common audio formats and stands for Waveform Audio File Format. It is intended for operation with a digitalized audio stream. However, it has also been used for non-audio data due to its sampling rate (1 Hz to 4.3 GHz). It contains musical compositions, voice recordings, and various audio effects. Developed by programmers from Microsoft and IBM, it is a crucial audio format for placing uncompressed sound files on Windows PCs. The wav wave files can be played back in QuickTime, Windows Media Player, Wav Player, and some other programs. In addition to that, they can be processed in audio editing apps.

When a file is compressed into WAV, the data are not supposed to be lost, and the quality is excellent. However, the format did not have a considerable market share due to its larger size than MP3. It must have enough time and disc space to upload and send such files via the Internet. One of WAV's major advantages is linked to Linear Pulse Code Modulation (LPCM) to store an audio stream. Consequently, a copy is just as good as an original, highly appraised by experts in music and professional users.

Technical details

Sound files with this extension are recorded into 8 or 16 bit per sample. A standard option for CD Audio is an audio stream of 16 bit per sample and a sampling frequency of 44.1 KHz. One second of sound corresponds to 88 Kb of internal memory. WAV files can store metadata in the INFO chunk, and they also include integrated IFF lists.

In some cases, the standard format may be used for broadcasting. For instance, BBC stereo data of 44 100 Hz and 16 bit are generally accepted within the VCS system.
