What is a .AIFF file?

An AIFF file, which stands for Audio Interchange File Format, is a type of audio file that stores sound data. This file format is known for preserving the high quality of audio because it saves the sound in an uncompressed, lossless format. This means that the audio is stored without any loss of quality, unlike some other formats that compress audio and reduce its fidelity.

AIFF files typically have the extension .AIFF, but you might also see them with .AIF or .AIFC extensions. The .AIFC extension is used when the AIFF file is compressed, which helps to reduce the file size while trying to maintain as much of the original audio quality as possible.
