AIFC to FLAC Converter

Convert AIFC to FLAC

AIFC to FLAC Conversion Software converts AIFC files to FLAC and keeps ID3 tag. The converter offers many useful features. For example, automatically normalizes volume of AIFC and FLAC so that all output files have the same volume; skips the first X milliseconds of AIFC and FLAC files when converting; only converts X milliseconds of AIFC and FLAC files; joins multiple files to one file. The converter also convert files to popular formats such as AAC, MMF, MP3, AMR, WMA, AC3, VOC, AU, etc. It could convert CAF to AAC, AMR to AAC, MLP to AAC for iPod/iPhone/iPad/iTunes/DSi, TS to M4R (iPhone ringtone), OMA to FLAC, AIFF to MMF, and so on.

The software is very easy to use and supports batch conversion. It is full compatible with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000 including both 32-bit and 64-bit editions.

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 FLAC?
Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format for lossless audio data compression. Being lossless, FLAC does not remove information from the audio stream, as lossy compression formats such as MP3, AAC, and Vorbis do. FLAC's primary author is Josh Coalson. FLAC reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without sacrificing the integrity of the audio source. A digital audio recording (such as a CD track) encoded to FLAC can be decompressed into an identical copy of the audio data. Audio sources encoded to FLAC are typically reduced in size 40 to 50 percent (46% according to their own comparison). FLAC is suitable for everyday audio playback and archival, with support for tagging, cover art and fast seeking. FLAC's free and open source royalty-free nature makes it well-supported by many software applications, but FLAC playback support in portable audio devices and dedicated audio systems is limited at this time.
