MP3 Audio File
MP3 (formally MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer-3) is a digital format for storing audio files and audio streaming. MPEG programmers designed the format. It is one of the most required codecs for digital coding. The format is widely used in various file-sharing sites for evaluation downloading.
Due to lossy compression in this audio format, it is possible to compress CD tracks up to 1/10 of their original size while maintaining high playback quality. Moreover, it can be encoded at higher or lower bit rates to adjust the resulting quality. Overtones, which cannot be perceived by a human ear, are removed. Complex algorithms allow for a smaller size of tracks. As a result, one compact disk can contain several hundred songs. MP3 is compatible with all the most popular operating systems and is supported by most modern DVD-players and music systems.
Before MP3 introduction, MPEG-1 had been widely used. That format contained not only audio data but images as well. MP3 breaks an audio file into parts of the same length. When the processing is over, each part is packed into its frame. It involves the spectral limit technology that requires a continuous input signal to provide the use of two adjacent structures.
When spectral deleting is over, the file is to be compressed with mathematic methods. If necessary, the compression rate can be changed, even inside the same frame. Files of 128 kbit/s have 11-fold compression. Further reduction of the file size will lead to a significant deterioration in sound quality.

Free Lossless Audio Codec
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.
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.
