Audio Interchange File Format [AIFF]

« BACK TO DICTIONARY INDEX

(n.) A sound file format defined by Apple Computer and others that can include both sampled sound and MIDI data. The AIFF-C variation stores the data in compressed form. AIFF files can be rendered by all Apple products and most other platforms. The raw sample data in an AIFF file is identical to that in a .wav file, but it is packaged differently.
