AIFF vs WAV
WAV files are popular because they are considered a “first generation” format. That is, they are generally kept as the first digital copy of a file completely uncompressed.
AIFF format results in an uncompressed PCM (pulse-code modulation) file meaning it still has relatively large file sizes, but maintains a higher quality of sound.
- 1: WAV and AIFF are both lossless formats.
- 2: both have the same exact digital audio information.
- 3: As pointed out earlier, the technical advantage to AIFF is its nativity to iTunes.
- 4: AIFF files offer a lot of flexibility in editing, copying, changing file formats, and other post-production activities.
- 5: They are the Apple/Macintosh equivalent of WAV files, though both Windows PCs and Apple Macs will recognize either format.
