What is AIFF?
Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is an audio file format standard used for
storing sound data for personal computers and other electronic audio devices.
The format was co-developed by Apple Computer in 1988 based on Electronic Arts'
Interchange File Format (IFF, widely used on Amiga systems) and is most commonly
used on Apple Macintosh computer systems. AIFF is also used by Silicon Graphics
Incorporated. The audio data in a standard AIFF file is uncompressed big-endian
pulse-code modulation (PCM). There is also a compressed variant of AIFF known
as AIFF-C or AIFC, with various defined compression codecs.
Standard AIFF is a leading format (along with SDII and WAV) used by professional-level
audio and video applications, and unlike the better-known lossy MP3 format, it
is non-compressed (which aids rapid streaming of multiple audio files from disk
to the application), and lossless. Like any non-compressed, lossless format, it
uses much more disk space than MP3¡ªabout 10MB for one minute of stereo
audio at a sample rate of 44.1 kHz and a sample size of 16 bits. In addition to
audio data, AIFF can include loop point data and the musical note of a sample,
for use by hardware samplers and musical applications.
The file extension for the standard AIFF format is .aiff or .aif. For the compressed
variants it is supposed to be .aifc, but .aiff or .aif are accepted as well by
audio applications supporting the format.
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.
