Preparations Before We Start.

πŸ‰ What if ALAC format:

ALAC is the abbreviation of Apple lossless audio codec, which is a lossless audio format developed by Apple. Common ALAC-encoded audio files and AAC-encoded audios are encapsulated in m4a containers. The main difference between ALAC and MP3 is that during the encoding process, MP3 will cancel a small part of the audio data in the high frequency and low-frequency parts, while ALAC will record it faithfully and will not delete any detailed data in the audio. Since the data is lossless, the file size of ALAC audio will be relatively large.

πŸ‰ What if AIFF format:

AIFF is the English abbreviation of Audio Interchange File Format (AudioInterchangeFileFormat). AIFF is a file format that stores digital audio (waveform) data. AIFF supports a variety of bit resolutions, sample rates, and audio channels. It is a sound file format developed by Apple. It is supported by the Macintosh platform and its applications. LiveAudio in NetscapeNavigator browser supports AIFF format, and SGI and professional audio software packages support AIFF format.
