AIFF: a high-quality audio file
This format first emerged in the late 1980s as a development of Apples specialists. It is a standardized format for storing audio data. AIFF files are not compressed, which is why they are larger than mp3. The audio file contains samples and loop information. It is most often used by qualified musicians who need high-quality sound. One minute of audio in the AIFF format requires 10 megabytes of disk space. The encoding process excludes data loss, which makes this format similar to WAV.
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.
