What is an AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format) file?

Apple developed Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) to store high-quality, digital-audio (waveform) data. Many professionals use it, particularly users of Apple platforms. It is lossless, which means there is no loss of quality or data from the original, but this also means that AIFF files take up more space. AIFF can locate loop point data and musical notes, which is useful for musicians.

 

How to open an AIFF file?

By default, AIFF opens in Windows Media Player or iTunes, depending on the operating system. Other programs that open AIFF include VLC media player, Audacity, Winamp, and Elmedia Player.

 

Please note that if using an Android or non-Apple device, you will need to convert the AIFF file—likely to a MP3 file—in order to open it. Mobile Apple products open AIFF files without file conversion.
