Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)
This format stands for advanced audio encoding. Created as an alternative to mp3, it allows for compressing files at bitrates identical to mp3, obtaining high-quality sound. Files of the AAC format contain many sampling frequencies. Advanced Audio Coding includes 48 channels. This type of encoding is more efficient and includes a larger number of filters. Files of the Advanced Audio Coding format cut off the frequencies which the human hearing cannot perceive. This results in a reduction of the original file size.
M4R: the ringtone file used in Apple iOS
The M4R format is used in Apples mobile devices, mostly for storing ringtones. You can create an M4R file by converting other formats or downloading it from the official iTunes store. The sound conversion employs a special type of compression, which significantly reduces the file size. The advantages of this format make it ideal for iPhone owners. M4R is one of the constituents of the standardized MPEG-4 format. One of its strong points is that the high sound quality is fully preserved after compression.
