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 great 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 as a notable benefit. To open AIFF files in Windows OS it is required to install Apple iTunes, Windows Media Player, Roxio Creator, and some other programs.

Technical details

When being coded, the stream is divided in 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 2 channels for stereo sound, and sampling frequency of 44 100 Hz. Being non-compressed, it differs in size significantly from MP3 and other similar formats. Sometimes it may contain samples and cycle information.
