AIFF Audio Format AIFF Converter
An AIFF file is also called an Audio Interchange File Format, and was developed decades ago. When the WAV file was created, it propelled Apple to respond and the AIFF file was that response. It is similar in design to a WAV file; both files store data in an uncompressed and lossless format, meaning that file sizes are high - sometimes prohibitively so - but both have exceptional sound quality.
AIFF files tend to be used most when burning audio onto CDs, because it provides the artist with high-quality sound. Despite all of Apple’s endeavours, the AIFF file never really ate into the WAV market share and so, as a format, it is not that widely used.
All major programs can open AIFF files, including iTunes, Windows Media Player and QuickTime.
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.
