WAV to AAC converter
The WAV file format (also known as WAVE, Waveform audio format, or audio for windows) is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard used for storing audio data. It is a widely-recognized and powerful audio format widely used for CD-quality audio and professional music production. As an uncompressed audio file, it uses pulse code modulation (PCM) to digitally encode data. This results in a large file size compared to compressed formats like MP3 or AAC.
WAV files have several advantages over other file types. It is widely supported by most operating systems, audio applications and playback hardware. It offers lossless audio quality and maximum compatibility across multiple platforms. The majority of sampled audio libraries are stored in WAV format, making it the ideal format for music playback and production.
The Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is a standard file format for storing and playing audio files. It is based on the MPEG-4 part 3 compression which makes it highly efficient and reduces the file size. It supports multichannel audio, such as surround sound, and also supports various sampling rates from 8 kHz up to 96 kHz. It also supports Digital Rights Management (DRM) for protecting audios from unauthorized use.
AAC files are widely used for storing audio recordings, such as music or spoken word recordings, and are supported by iTunes, Apple Music, YouTube, and many other audio players. The popularity of AAC files has helped to make them the default format for many audio applications.
