I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!

I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.

Christopher Bee

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

I feel like Zamzar is an active team member, especially for projects that I work on where I am the workhorse and it saves so much time and frustration. I am spoiled with Zamzar, because they have set the bar for file conversion and customer service very high.

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

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.

MP3 Audio Format

MP3 Converter

MP3 goes by the full name of MPEG Audio Layer-3 and is perhaps the most widely used audio file around today. MP3 is a file format developed by the Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG) which uses compression to produce smaller file sizes. The type of compression used means some data is lost, but typically audio playback quality is not obviously impacted, especially when recording files at higher bitrates. Other popular audio formats, such as WAV, can be up to 10 times the size of an equivalent MP3 file. Almost all applications are able to open MP3 files including Windows Media Player and iTunes on macOS. The MP3 file format famously exploded in popularity during the '90s and '00s as music moved online and become digitised.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

AIFF is not the same as MP3. AIFF files are uncompressed RAW audio files that have crisp sound but are particularly large in size. MP3 files are compressed audio files with fairly high-quality audio, and take up significantly less space than AIFF files, making them a popular format to use.

You can easily convert your AIFF file on a Macbook Pro in three easy steps using Zamzar’s converter tool. Just upload your AIFF file, select the format you want to convert to, and then download the converted file. Alternatively, you can use the Music application on your Mac, by navigating to ‘Preferences’, then ‘Files’, then ‘Import Settings’. Select the encoding format you’d like to convert your file to and click ‘OK’. Then select your AIFF file and go to ‘File’ > ‘Convert’ > ‘Create [format] Version’, and the converted file will appear in your music library.

If you’re having difficulty playing your AIFF file, you can easily convert it to a file format of your choice using Zamzar’s free online converter. Applications that can play AIFF files include Windows Media Player, Apple Music, QuickTime Player, and VideoLAN’s VLC Player.

AIFF files are often used by music professionals, such as sound engineers, because they are uncompressed and offer excellent sound quality. They tend to be the file- type of choice when the highest-quality sound is needed.

VLC Media Player can plan AIFF files, and this file type can also be played by other applications, such as Windows Media Player, Apple Music and QuickTime Player. If you don't want to download a software to play your files, you can simply convert them to another format of your choice using Zamzar’s 3-step converter tool.
