Convert WAV to ALAC
WAV to ALAC Conversion Software converts WAV
files to ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec). With a simple and use-to-use
interface, the conversion from WAV to ALAC is as easy as 1-2-3. You don't
need to know professional knowledge of WAV and ALAC. The converter also support
common formats such as MKA, AAC, AC3, MP3, M4R (iPhone ringtone), AU, AIFF, MMF, etc. It could convert CDA to OGG, AU to AC3, 3GP to M4R (iPhone ringtone), CAF to M4R (iPhone ringtone), MOV to MP3, THD to M4R (iPhone ringtone), and so
The software is very easy to use and supports batch conversion.
It is full compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is WAV?
WAV (or WAVE), short for Waveform audio format, is a Microsoft and IBM audio file
format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It is a variant of the
RIFF bitstream format method for storing data in "chunks", and thus
also close to the IFF and the AIFF format used on Amiga and Macintosh computers,
respectively. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically
uncompressed audio. The default bitstream encoding is the Microsoft Pulse Code
Modulation (PCM) format.
Both WAVs and AIFFs are compatible with Windows, Macintosh, and Linux operating
systems. The format takes into account some differences of the Intel CPU such
as little-endian byte order. The RIFF format acts as a "wrapper" for
various audio compression codecs.
Though a WAV file can hold compressed audio, the most common WAV format contains
uncompressed audio in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format. The standard
audio file format for CDs, for example, is LPCM-encoded, containing two channels
of 44,100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample. Since LPCM uses an uncompressed
storage method which keeps all the samples of an audio track, professional users
or audio experts may use the WAV format for maximum audio quality. WAV audio can
also be edited and manipulated with relative ease using software. The WAV format
supports compressed audio, using, on Windows, the Audio Compression Manager. Any
ACM codec can be used to compress a WAV file. The UI for Audio Compression Manager
may be accessed through various programs that use it, including Sound Recorder
in some versions of Windows.
Beginning with Windows 2000, a WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE header was defined which
specifies multiple audio channel data along with speaker positions, eliminates
ambiguity regarding sample types and container sizes in the standard WAV format
and supports defining custom extensions to the format chunk.
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.
