FLAC to AIFF converter
FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is an open-source audio format that is both lossless and compressed. Lossless means that no information is lost in the compression process, which preserves the full quality of the original audio source. FLAC is very popular among audiophiles and listeners who want the best possible experience while listening to music.
FLAC files typically have a .flac extension and can be played on almost any modern media player, including VLC, Windows Media Player, and Foobar2000. The format works best when streamed over an internet connection, providing high-quality audio without any slowdowns or glitches.
The Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is a file format for storing high-quality audio data. It was developed by Apple Inc. in 1987 and is used commonly in the Mac OS operating system and its associated applications, though it can be found on other platforms as well. An AIFF file can store many different types of audio data, including samples taken from analog sources such as vinyl records and standard CD-quality audio.
AIFF files are uncompressed, making them larger than lossy compressed formats like MP3 and AAC -- but also providing better audio quality overall. Additionally, AIFF supports metadata tags like artist name and track title, allowing audio players to quickly identify the audio file's contents. While less common today than MP3 and other formats, AIFF still enjoys a following among audiophiles, musicians, and other audio professionals.
