WAV to FLAC 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.
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.
