Burn AIFF to CD with Free AIFF to CD Burner Freeware

AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format) is a file format for storing digital audio (waveform) data. It supports a variety of bit resolutions, sample rates, and channels of audio. This format is very popular upon Apple platforms, and is widely used in professional programs that process digital audio waveforms. 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.

The audio data in a standard AIFF file is uncompressed pulse-code modulation (PCM). There is also a compressed variant of AIFF known as AIFF-C or AIFC, with various defined compression codecs.

In Windows, the extension for this file type is usually AIF. On a Mac, the file extension is not needed but when present may be AIFF. A Mac file uses a Type and Creator resource to identify itself to the operating system and the applications that can open it.

AIFF is one of the two most common audio file formats used in the Apple Macintosh operating system. The other is Sound Designer II (SDII). Most CD writers can accept AIFF or SDII files interchangeably when writing a Red Book audio CD. AIFF is sometimes referred to as "Apple Interchange File Format."

An AIF file contains the raw audio data, channel information (monophonic or stereophonic), bit depth,sample rate, and application-specific data areas. The application-specific data areas let different applications add information to the file header that remains there even if the file is opened and processed by another application.
