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 ALAC?
Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE,
or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple
Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.
Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension
.m4a. It is not a variant of AAC, but uses linear prediction similar to other
lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten. iPod players with a dock connector (not
the Shuffle) and recent firmware can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does
not utilize any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the
container, it is thought that DRM can be applied to ALAC much the same way it
can with other files in QuickTime containers.
