Brief facts about WAV files

  • WAV is a short form for "Waveform Audio File Format”. This is a standard audio format that usually comes uncompressed, but compression also occurs. Such a file stores information about the number of tracks in the file, sample rate, bit depth, and whether it's a mono or stereo.
  • Initially WAV was derived from the RIFF (resource interchange file format), which stored data in indexed chunks. In 1988 Apple derived their own version of this format defined as AIFF, which is equivalent to WAV.
