What is AIFC?
AIFC stands for Compressed Audio Interchange File. Compressed .AIFF audio file that contains CD-quality audio; similar to a .WAV file, but uses audio compression to reduce file size; may incorporate ULAW, ALAW, or G722 compression; commonly referred to as an AIFF-C file.

AIFF-C is being defined because AIFF does not allow for compressed audio data. AIFF-C adds the ability to store compressed audio data in a standard manner. Naturally, AIFF-C also allows the storage of uncompressed audio data. The "C" in AIFF-C signifies its extension to handle compressed audio data.

The differences between the original AIFF and AIFF-C were kept to a minimum. Applications which currently support AIFF should be easily upgradable to AIFF-C.

The following changes have been made from AIFF:

  • The FORM identifier was changed from 'AIFF' to 'AIFC'. This distinguishes AIFF-C files from AIFF files. Existing AIFF programs, until they are upgraded, will simply ignore AIFF-C files.
  • The Common Chunk has been extended to include a compression type ID and a compression type name. AIFF-C is thus capable of storing compressed audio data generated from any compression algorithms.
  • The Sound Data Chunk can contain compressed audio data. The Chunk format has not been modified.
  • The Sound Accelerator (Saxel) Chunk is new. It is designed to eliminate initial artifacts caused by the de-compression algorithms when playback begins at a random point defined by a Marker.
  • The Format Version Chunk is new. This Chunk is designed to provide a smooth transition for potential future upgrades to the AIFF-C specification.

What is MP3?
MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, more commonly referred to as MP3, is a digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard encoding for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players. MP3's use of a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners, but is not considered high fidelity audio by audiophiles. An MP3 file that is created using the mid-range bit rate setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is typically about 1/10th the size of the CD file created from the original audio source. An MP3 file can also be constructed at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality. The compression works by reducing accuracy of certain parts of sound that are deemed beyond the auditory resolution ability of most people. This method is commonly referred to as perceptual coding. It internally provides a representation of sound within a short term time/frequency analysis window, by using psychoacoustic models to discard or reduce precision of components less audible to human hearing, and recording the remaining information in an efficient manner. This is relatively similar to the principles used by JPEG, an image compression format.
