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.
Core Audio Format
This audio file container was created by Apples developers. CAF incorporates a huge amount of information: the artists name, the songs duration, the names of the album and track. In terms of size, files of the CAFformat can exceed 4 GB. After its emergence in 2005, Core Audio Format replaced AIFF and WAV. It has a lower compression ratio, so the quality of audio does not suffer as a result of compression. CAF files are often used to create various sound effects.
