AAC Audio Format AAC Converter
AAC is one of the most common formats for digital music, in a large part because it is the default format for Apple devices and the iTunes program, as well as some Sony and Nintendo devices. AAC is short for Advanced Audio Coding. It was developed in 1997 and is now an open standard recognised by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization.
Like MP3, the AAC file format uses lossy compression. With both formats there is some loss of audio quality to create smaller file sizes that let users to store and share music more easily. However, with both MP3 and AAC, most listeners cannot hear this loss of quality. AAC also generally produces higher quality sound than MP3. As AAC is a widely used open standard format for digital music, you can play AAC audio tracks with almost all media players, including Apple Music, Windows Media Player, VLC, and Adobe Audition.
M4A Audio Format M4A Converter
An M4A file format is also called an MPEG-4 audio file, and is an audio file saved in the MPEG-4 standard. It was developed by Apple, largely as a result of the popularity of the MP3 file. An M4A file is the go-to audio format for compressed audio, due to the creation and popularity of iTunes.
M4A files tend to be encoded using an AAC codec and are small in size because they have been compressed - often providing a smaller file-size footprint than an MP3 file format, while mirroring, if not improving, the quality of an MP3 file. As more and more music was consumed on the go via devices such as iPods and smartphones, the need for small file sizes became greater, which is why an M4A file has grown in popularity and importance.
One downside of an M4A file, especially when compared to an MP3 format, is that it can only be opened by iTunes or Windows Media Player version 12 and later. By comparison, an MP3 file is universally supported.
