Technical details

According to the published specifications, AIF format files store raw uncompressed audio, which takes a lot of storage space. A standard AIF file has a sampling rate of 44.1KHz and a bit depth of 16 bits. Structurally, AIFs are divided into chunks. Each chunk stores a different type of information: the actual audio data necessary for playback, the track name, metadata, etc.
