Waveform Audio File Format: a format for storing digitized sound recordings
The Waveform Audio file format is a creation of Microsoft Corporation. The WAV format is the first standard audio file with high-quality sound. It contains sounds, sound effects, voice recordings, and music tracks. The Waveform Audio file format is currently considered outdated. The main reason for its obsoletion is the fact that files of this type are characterized by a large size. The greatest advantage of WAV is sound compression without any losses. In this format, samples range from 8 to 16 bits. Waveform Audio files are used as system sounds in the Windows operating system.
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.
